Danube frozen over

German authorities closed the Kachlet and Jochstein locks in the vicinity of Passau due to ice on February 5th 2012. The Main Danube Canal was already closed 2 days earlier, but icebreakers are used on the canal to avoid that massive ice chunks damage bridges or locks. Parts of the Main river are closed for the same reason.
