Gemeente Toerisme Damme


The Leopold and Schipdonk canal intersect the Damse Vaart in the location of the syphons. The navigable connection between Bruges and Sluis along the Damse Vaart would not have been possible without these syphons. These so-called sag pipes ensured both canals of the Damse Vaart remained navigable.
