Handoperierendes Schleusentor am Gerafluß in Erfurt

Unmittelbar am Mühlenmuseum in der Erfurter Altstadt wird hier der Fluß Gera derart angestaut, damit das Mühlrad des Mühlenmuseums sich durch Wasserkraft drehen kann. Damit wird eine Fallhöhe von bis zu 1,5 Metern erreicht. Die bereitgestellten Bilder sagen eigentlich mehr als viele Worte hier.

Handoperated lock at Gerariver in Erfurt

Immediately at the mill museum in the old town of Erfurt, the river Gera is dammed up so that the mill wheel of the mill museum can be turned by water power. This achieves a drop height of up to 1.5 meters. The images provided actually say more than many words here.
