Bike Touring Highlight
As a replacement for the swing bridge, a pedestrian tunnel was built between 1962 and 1965.The actual tunnel tube is 131 m long, the height difference of about 28 m to the ground level is overcome with two escalators each of 55.9 m (travel time two minutes) and a lift on each side of the canal. This tunnel is located near the location of the former swing bridge.

The tunnel is the Kiel Canal underpass for pedestrians and cyclists. It is accessible by elevator and escalators. At the south portal there is a Greek restaurant, an ice cream parlor, a doner kebab and a restaurant with German cuisine. On the northern side, the Conventgarten (restaurant and hotel) and an ice cream parlor right in front of the escalator.
