There is a nice walking/biking path along the canal. It is paved and wide enough for everyone to enjoy the beautiful canal. There are fishermen along the way too. Enjoy the canal with a nice walk along the canal.

A perfect mix of history from the past few centuries. You can enjoy this area on foot, a bike, or in a car. Plenty of places along the way to enjoy local food, too.
