Anke’s picture f the Elbe tunnel in Hamburg reminded me that there is a similar facility in Rotterdam under the Maas and in Antwerp under the Schelde. Both were built around a hundred years ago and many of the original features are preserved. This is the one in Rotterdam. Presently, the old wooden elevators undergo a renovation. There are separate floors for cyclists and pedestrians

The building with the green cupola in the back is the north entrance

There are lifts, but most cyclists use the old moving stairs
