Boat passing through a water gate in Germany

There are many small dams across the rivers of Germany. Because the level of water is higher on one side, boats have to go through a water gate, which brings the boat to the level of the water on the other side. It's a very interesting experience to pass through such a water gate.

Boat is approaching the gate.

The gate is closed and the water-level in the gate is sinking.

Kids are watching curiously.

People on the dam are also watching.

Now the boat is at the same level as the water on the other side. The gate is opening.

The gate opens further.

Now the boat is out of the gate.

And this is the dam, on the river Saar.
