Through the Gliwice Canal you can reach Koźle or you can follow the Oder and reach Szczecin, Berlin, Amsterdam. In just one day you can take a cruise to and from charming Pławniowice with a break for sightseeing and having a picnic.
The Gliwice Canal hydroelectric infrastructure in the form of sluices and weirs was built before World War II. It allows overcoming the distance of 40 km from Gliwice to Koźla with the difference in water level of 43 m. 6 sluices allow for sailing, the most important two are more than 10m in height. The lowest of them called 'Łabędy', located in Gliwice, is 4.2 m heigh and is a popular destination of sightseeing cruises. During such a cruise you can see how the water in the Gliwice Canal has cleaned and the grassy banks have become a nesting site for waterfowl: herons, cormorants, ducks and swans. The value of this cultural heritage is priceless, hence the Oder Marinas Association, established in 2013, decided to act and save these monuments from oblivion and destruction. The Association is also the initiator of cultural events such as concerts and film screenings.
