The Kiel Canal is a 61 mile long canal cutting through the base of the Jutland peninsula in the northern part of Germany. The canal connects the Baltic and the North Seas, and cuts about 250 miles off the route from the Baltics to the Atlantic. It is said to be the busiest artifical waterway in the world. The locks at each end of the canal are not there to overcome an elevation gain (it is actually very flat there), but to minimize tidal fluctuations.
