Schiffshebewerk Henrichenburg

Kaiser Wilhelm II was seriously impressed when he opened the massive boat lift of Henrichenburg in 1899. Well, boats grew bigger with time and this lift was closed down 70 years later. What’s left has been converted into a museum and is part of Ruhr’s industrial heritage trail.
