Both the Ruhr river and the Rhein-Herne canal have several locks in the area. Pictured here is a crossing of the Ruhr at the lock in Ruhrort during a Sunday long-run from Oberhausen, through parts of Mülheim to Duisburg, passing the Landschaftspark open-air museum (one of the largest reminders of the steel industry of the past), before closing the 27 km loop back where it began. Ruhrort was a former industrial hotspot of the region and today is home to one of the largest inland harbors in Europe. Duisburg, Germany, December 22, 2019.
