Obel's Kanal

Obels Kanal fills the area around Kanalhavnen with life with a fresh breath of the fjord. The Channel was initiated in 1997 where it was build in order to bring the city behind the industry area closer to the Limfjord.

The name, Obels Kanel, is given after the tobacco factory C. W. Obels. At Strandvejen you will find granite sculptures named ”Tripalaka”, which is Sanskrit and means ”the three guardians”. These sculptures were raised in 1996 and are made by the sculptor Kirsten Lockenwitz.

A bascule bridge makes it possible to sail through the channel. The bascule bridge will open against payment. This can be done by contacting the bridge guardian at the Limfjord Bridge.
