Around 1674 in or near Muiden locks were build to prevent floodings of the area by water from the Zuiderzee and also to be used as inundations for the (Old) Dutch Waterline defence system.
The locks in the river Vecht about 10 kilometers inland near Hinderdam were then disused.
In 1975-1976 the locks were modernised and restored. Hydraulic installations replaced the manual work of operating the locks. The locks are nowadays primarily in use for pleasure boating. The cast iron bridge over the locks dates from 1870.

More information

Omstreeks 1674 is in of bij Muiden een sluis gebouwd om overstromingen vanuit de toenmalige Zuiderzee tegen te gaan en te dienen in het inundatiesysteem van de Oude Hollandse Waterlinie. De sluis in de Vecht zo’n 10 kilometer landinwaarts bij Hinderdam is vervolgens opgeheven.
In 1975-1976 werd de sluis gerestaureerd en gemoderniseerd. Hydraulische installaties namen het handwerk om de sluisdeuren te bedienen over. De sluis wordt nu voornamelijk gebruikt voor de pleziervaart. De ijzeren draaibrug over het zuidelijke sluishoofd dateert uit 1870.
