    Nice little ferry that carries people, dogs and bicycles. A person with a bicycle costs € 2.80. That's appropriate - you can't complain.

    Small people and bicycle ferry from the very beautiful old half-timbered houses town Hitzacker. If you want to get over before nine, there is a phone number, and the ferryman is coming.

    This ferry "Bitter - Hitzacker" is a nice opportunity for cyclists and pedestrians to get dry on the route between Darchau-Neu Darchau (ferry) and Dömitz-Dannenberg (bridge) across the Elbe.
    -------------------------------------------------- -----
    The nice ferry "Bitter - Hitzacker" is for cyclists and ok for pedestrians and a nice Saak for the day to wash the streets Darchau-Neu Darchau and Doemz-Dannbarg with dull fists or the Elw dew.

    At the moment the ferry operation is stopped due to low water. The ferry has a new berth and is not accessible due to the construction work. If you're lucky, a friendly gentleman will bring you over there with a smaller boat. But he doesn't do it full-time. But you have to go to the west side of the Jeetzel estuary.

    When the construction is finished, the ferry can be reached again via the east side.

    One of the smallest ferries in Germany, only for cyclists and pedestrians.

    The small ferry looks quite funny and is just for a few miles the only way to cross the Elbe as a cyclist or hiker.

    Possibility for round trip to Dömitz or Neu Darchau. Hitzacker is always worth a trip.

    Without a ferry you can not cross the Elbe. Especially in the cool months, it can lead to failures.

    If I remember rightly, I crossed over to get a coffee and couldn't get back because the river was so low. Ended up staying on that side and went up some big hills.

    Unfortunately only in operation until 6 p.m. In the summer months I find that a little early. A farmer took us to the other bank with his boat. Thanks a lot.

    The Elberadweg is a lovely route, nice and flat for a first trip, either from Dresden to Prague to Cuxhaven. The ferry is one of the many along the Elbe to cross

    Small but nice! Perfect for a family day tour from Hitzacker / destinature!

    2 bikes, 2 people, 5 euros 60. You have to do that. It doesn't matter if you have to go over there or not!
    The mooring maneuver on the Hitzack side alone is a must have!
    Hitzacker himself: Nice people, nice place ... you should definitely take a break there and enjoy.
    A beautiful place on the Elbe!
