"River Lock at Zeltingen" Zeltingen-Rachtig Things to Do Tip by Kathrin_E
Zeltingen-Rachtig Things to Do: 7 reviews and 22 photos
The lock cannot be visited on foot - the only way to see it from close by is by boat. The tour boats to Bernkastel-Kues pass through.
The Mosel is a rather busy waterway. Freight carriers transport coal, containers and other goods to the Saarland and further along the canals into France. Traffic jams in front of the locks happen. Some of these freighters are so big that they hardly seem to fit into the basin. They do, though, because both the length of the ships and the size of the lock basins are normed.
