Elbe-Havel Canal

German  Elbe-Havel-Kanal 
 navigable waterway (canals and inland waterways) in Germany, linking the Elbe (Elbe River) and Havel (Havel River) rivers. Its eastern end joins the Plauensee, a lake on the Havel River, at Brandenburg, downstream from Berlin. In the west it joins the Elbe north of Magdeburg at Niegripp, near the eastern terminus of the Mittelland Canal. It thus forms part of an east-west chain of waterways crossing Germany. The Elbe-Havel Canal is 56 km (35 miles) long and has three locks. With a depth of 2 metres (6.5 feet), it can accommodate vessels of up to 1,000 tons.
