Today, on our Gota Canal Cruise, we transited the staircase of seven locks at Berg, situated near the town of Linköping. It was fascinating to watch for an hour or so as Juno worked her way up the staircase from Lake Roxen, at 33 meters above sea level, to eventually arrive at Lake Boren, 73 meters above sea level.
