This year, the Baltic-North Sea (a.k.a Kiel Canal) is celebrating its 125th anniversary. The canal connects Kiel with Brunsbüttel in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein and is one of the busiest canals in Europe and the World. Its 90 km stretch includes some of the finest crossings that exist. Have a look at the history of the canal via ALison Stewart. A link to the bridges along the canal can be found via BHC here:

Petite canals enliven cities like Amsterdam, St Petersburg, Bruges and Venice but there’s nothing quite like a big canal. These giant shipping channels sculpt the landscape, connecting oceans, separating continents and joining rivers.
Here’s my story on the Kiel Canal that connects the Baltic Sea with the Atlantic. It was published in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age Traveller on January 24, 2020. You can also read it online here: https://www.traveller.com.au/lock-and-load-for-germanys-kiel-canal-h1kxge
