Great walk

Anytime this is a great walk (not in the rain). Take notice of the sculpture and the buildings. Check the power station if it is open.

I went to see the locks, but at the end the whole canal was a great surprise. Nice views and photo opportunities along it. Very impressive locks.

I lived here for one year and those kanal were one of my favorite place to be. Walking around or riding a bike was an experience of pure happiness. In my life i don't think that I ever saw grass green as that you can find there. Along the river you can also find several coffee shop where you can... More

You can tour three locks systems from three different time periods (1800, 1840, 1900) in an hour. Start in the (free entry) locks museum and join a (free) guided tour (in English).
