A historic, everyday drama

Come and watch huge amounts of water pour into one of the Göta Canal’s 58 locks. Each one is completely unique. Most of the locks are powered by hydraulics these days, but in Borensberg and Tåtorp there are still two that are operated manually. Talk to the lock keepers – maybe they’ll let you help out!


Flights of locks

91.8 metres above sea level is the highest point of the Göta Canal. To get there, you have to pass through locks – 58 of them! Some places have flights of locks – several individual locks placed one after the other. The most famous flight of locks is in Berg. It has 7 interconnected locks that lift boats a total of 18.8 metres!
