It seems impossible to hear there is a river above the river. However, this is really happening in Germany.
Magdeburg Water Bridge. This is the water bridge that can be crossed by of large ships. With a length of 918 meters, this is the longest bridge in Germany.
Magdeburg Water Bridge deliberately created and serves to transport the goods from the east and west Germany. These specially for large commercial vessels of the Elbe-Havel canal to the Mittelland Canal. Ships that pass through this pathway did not need to bother to detour 12 kilometers when using the river Elbe.
Without this bridge, the ships of the Mittelland must go down to the river Elbe through Rotjensee boat lift, then sailed down the Elbe River. The low water level of the River Elbe often inhibit heavy vessels passing through this route.
Not just a passing ship, but other activities are also often performed. The bridge is also frequently visited by local tourists just to see the entry and exit of ships, as reported from Amusingplanet.
