Canals in Strasbourg

 Four other large world cities compare to Strasbourg with their canal systems. They are Brugges, Belgium, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Venice, Italy and Bangkok, Thailand. In Strasbourg the canals run through the heart of the downtown. It is amazing to see structures built down into the canals.

This lock on the canal system in Strasbourg serves to raise and lower river traffic. It is constructed out of wood and dates to the late middle ages.
