New Niederfinow boat lift

Schiffshebewerk Niederfinow

Since 1934, the Niederfinow boat lift has provided the link between Berlin and the Baltic Sea port of Szczecin between the apex of the Havel-Oder waterway and the lower section leading to the Oder. The new Niederfinow boat lift was built between the old lift and the historic lock stairs.
