  1. Albert Canal

    The Albert Canal is a canal located in northeastern Belgium, named after King Albert I of Belgium. It connects the major cities Antwerp and Liège and the Meuse and Scheldt rivers, as well as the Canal Dessel-Turnhout-Schoten. It has a depth of 3.4 metres, a free height of 6.7 metres and a total length of 129.5 kilometres. The maximum capacity is a barge of 10,000 tons. Between Antwerp and Liège, there is a height difference of 56 metres, and a total of 6 canal locks were needed to overcome the difference in elevation. Five canal locks each have a height difference of 10 metres, located in Genk, Diepenbeek, Hasselt, Kwaadmechelen and Olen, while the canal lock at Wijnegem has a height difference of 5.45 metres. In the 1930s, it took about 7 days to travel from Antwerp to Liege over water. These days the same distance is covered in 18 hours. Since the completion of the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal in 1992, a barge can now travel from Antwerp all the way across Europe to the Black Sea.
