On the instigation of the Elector Johann Georg, the Fürstenwalder Mühlenstau dam, first mentioned in 1298, was turned into a flash lock in 1588. It allowed shipping to pass through to the “Frankfurter Niederlage” at Lake Kersdorfer See. From here, goods could be transported over land to the River Oder in Frankfurt. In 1738 and 1833, two new locks were built in the area between the present-day weir and the North Lock. The more recent one was built with offset heads so that two boats 40.2 metres long and 4.6 metres wide could use the lock at the same time. These dimensions passed into history in 1845 as the first standardised inland waterway dimensions. In 1836/38, the Königliche Wasserbau-Inspektion (Royal Hydraulic Construction Inspectorate) had the paddle holes and weir renewed in order to guarantee water retention, access to shipping and ice removal.

A new weir was built in 1890 and the present Fürstenwalde North Lock, with a usable length of 65 metres, was built in 1891. The wider South Lock was added in 1912-1914. Both locks were closed by mitre gates at the upper and lower end. Filling and draining are carried out using wedge roller gates during gate rotation. The heads, soles and parts of the rising chamber wall are made from concrete, reinforced with steel in places. The upper part of the chamber walls is made from brickwork.

The new Fürstenwalde weir started operation in 1996. The new weir has three weir sections, each with 2 dam boards, which operate automatically depending on the water level.
  • Chamber length 67 metres
  • Chamber width 8.45 metres
  • Drop: 0.93 metres
  • Boat hoist usable
  • Chamber walls: North and South chamber: masonry with edge and intermediate bollards (both sides)
  • SOW 74.75 kilometres
  • UKW 22 / telephone +49 3361-773241

The small sports boat waiting area in the lower water is directly in front of the gates between the North and South chamber. Alternatively, there are the approach piers, and a separate sports boat mooring with landing access is located behind the approach pier on the right bank.
