Arzviller Barge Lift - France

The Arzviller Barge Lift is an "inclined plane lift", located on the Marne-Rhine Canal in Alsace-Lorraine, France. It lifts water boxes loaded with boats, up a hillside some 170 feet. The water boxes are counterbalanced by the large concrete blocks attached with cables. The weights pass under the water boxes.
