This is certainly worthwhile a visit with the possibility to travel on a ship through the floodgates, along the canal and/or river. In addition some great level walks with a coffeehouse nearby. Great for warmer days with plenty of benches to rest and lovely views.

It's a bit of if the city center but it's definitely worth a visit. It's fascinating to see the river and the channel cross and it's also a nice spot to just sit and relax.

where Mittellandkanal and Weser pass each other. The channel is placed in its own bridge to cross the river. Difficult to explain. Go there, check it out.
