    The picture was taken at the Kiel Holtenauer bridge, along the KIEL-CANAL (known in Germany as the NORD-OSTSEE-KANAL). It runs for almost 100 km right through Schleswig-Holstein - from Brunsb├╝ttel to Kiel-Holtenau - and links the North Sea with the Baltic.

    An average of 250 nautical miles will be saved by using the KIEL-CANAL instead of the way around Skaw. During its building phases, naval strategies were an important basis for the trade between the countries of the baltic area with the rest of the world.

    Looks like her mast barely cleared the bridge!
