The Grand Canal of Alsace (French: Grand Canal d’Alsace, German: Rheinseitenkanal) is a canal in eastern France, channeling the Upper Rhine river. It is 50 kilometers (about 30 miles) long between Kembs and Vogelgrun, and provides access to the region from the Rhine River, Basel in Switzerland, and the North Sea for barges of up to 1,350 metric tons. The Grand Canal is larger than the Suez Canal and permits the navigation of more than 30,000 boats a year between Basel and Strasbourg.
