IMPORTANT: New lock closure times for 2017


The initially planned lock closures on the Moselle in 2017 had to be postponed, due to important works on the railway line along the Moselle which would have overlapped with the lock closure times on the river and thus led to a simultaneous closure of the waterway as well as the railway line.

In order to avoid economic prejudice to the users of the waterway, the shippers and the companies of the Saar-Moselle region, the following lock closure times have now been fixed for 2017:


- from 27 June to 4 July 2017 in the German and German-Luxembourg section of the Moselle,

- from 26 June to 5 July 2017 in the French section of the Moselle.


Details about all planned lock closure times on the Moselle until 2025 can be found here.
