Kiel Canal
The Kiel Canal is a freshwater canal that connects the Baltic Sea to the North Sea through Germany. It was created not only to shorten travel time, but also to allow ships to avoid the storm-prone and often dangerous seas around the Jutland Peninsula. The canal was widened between 1907 and 1914 so that Dreadnought-sized battleships could pass through. Despite this action, most large cruise ships are still unable to fit under the clearance limits of many of the bridges today.
