Watch the locking - A historic, everyday drama

Thousands of boats pas throuth the Göta Canal locks every summer. Come and watch huge amounts of water pour into one of the 58 locks. Each one is completely unique but most of the locks are powered by hydraulics these days. However, in Borensberg and Tåtorp there are still two that are operated manually.


Talk to the lock keepers – maybe they’ll let you help out!
