The Canal de la Marne au Rhin in France

The canal de la Marne au Rhin is a canal that dates back to 1853. The canal runs 312 km through eastern France and holds 155 locks.

The first plans to build the canal came around 1780. The first study wasn’t completed until 1826. In 1838 Charles Collignon Ettien finally got the honor to start up the digging.
