This canal used to be the navigable connection between Finowkanal and the Werbellinsee. Today it goes to the Oder-Havel-Wasserstrasse only and has there a link to Finowkanal. Today, works are done again on this connecting stretch, which was closed to navigation in the nineteen thirties, and it should soon be open for leisure boating again.
At Altendorf on the Werbellinsee was the DDR-Pionierrepublik Whilhelm Pieck, it was to a large extent built as its example, the Soviet Allunions-Ponierslagers on Crimea.
