Øer Maritime village canal

Connects Øer Maritime village to Kattegatt

About 40 kilometer south of Grenaa at the southeastern edge of Djursland a holiday village was built some years ago. The village was built om seven artificially built islands in an artrificial lake, and is thus called De sju öer - The seven islands.
The lake is connected to Kattegatt with a 300 meter long canal. The canal is 10 meters wide and 3 meter deep. There is a lock too and it is manned from sunrise to sunset during summertime. Fairly big boats can pass through the canal and there is a good marina in the lake.
The canal and village is rather impressive and built in a modern danish design,
There are about 350 houses on the artificail islands and all of them have their own mooring.

The lock was officially opened in 1988. It is 30 meters long and 7 meters wide. It raises the boats 1,6 meter.
The lock gets its water from the artifial lake and there are pumps that takes water directly from the sea, securing that the waterlevel is constant and that the water in the lake always is fresh seawater.
