Closed is not Open


Nevertheless, one can park at the picnic area and walk along the side of the road to get a glimpse of this "boat ride": to enable canal barges to change altitude without a long (and time-consuming) series of locks, the "inclined plane" at Arzviller-St. Louis floats them into the large bucket which we see at the upper position on its track (left center, below) . Barges enter from the upper canal to our right, travel down to the basin (foreground) and exit to our left, or vice versa.
