Altarmwehr Quitzöbel

The oxbow weir is located in the north-east of Saxony-Anhalt and was built around 1936-1937 for water regulation and flood protection. The weir system consists of a double sweeping half-timbered gate as a weir closure and a barge lock. Both parts are separated by a massive centre pillar and bordered by two massive edge pillars.
