Göta Canal

Göta Canal is Sweden's largest construction project ever made. On April 12, 1810 Baltzar von Platen got permission to start building the canal from Mem on the east coast to Sjötorp next to lake Vänern. Baltzar von Platen died three years before the canal was opened in Mem year 1832.

Göta Canal is 190.5 km long and the difference in level is 91.8 meters. The highest point at the canal is lake Viken where M/S Sandön travels. Overall, the canal has 58 sluice. The sluice with the greatest level difference is in Forsvik where also Sweden's oldest iron bridge (inaugurated in 1813) still can be seen next to the sluice. The sluice at the canal with the lowest level difference is in Tåtorp. This lock opens and closes with manpower and the level difference is usually around 30cm. Both Forsviks and Tåtorp sluice we pass on the M/S Sandön as we travel between Karlsborg and Töreboda.
