    Has anybody seen this? It's in Germany.

    The photograph displayed above is one of a real structure, a kilometer-long "concrete bathtub" water bridge over the Elbe River in Germany that joins the Elbe-Havel canal to the Mittelland canal near the eastern town of Magdeburg.

    We have a similar bridge here that was built in 1833 to carry the C&O canal across the Potomac River. All that is left is two arches. See http://www.victoriansecrets.net/aqueduct.html for details.

    There is a similar bridge, but smaller, in North Wales near Llangollen, built in the early 1800s. It is still useable. My nephew has a narrow boat, 60 ft long 8 ft wide, which he takes on these canals.

    Here is a bikeable "water tunnel" in Paw Paw WV. Also on the C&O canal.
