The Mittelland Canal, also known as the Midland Canal, is a major canal in central Germany. It forms an important link in the waterway network of that country, providing the principal east-west inland waterway connection. Its significance goes beyond Germany as it links France, Switzerland and the Benelux countries with Poland, the Czech Republic and the Baltic Sea.
The Mittelland Canal branches off the Dortmund-Ems Canal at Hörstel , runs north along the Teutoburg Forest, past Hannover and meets with the Elbe River near Magdeburg . Near Magdeburg it connects to the Elbe-Havel Canal, making a continuous shipping route to Berlin and on to Poland.
