Bike Touring Highlight
The Kiel Canal is an artificial waterway, through the construction of which not only landscapes, forests and fields were intersected, but sometimes also villages and existing highways. The major roads and railways were connected by gigantic bridges, while the smaller ones are "bridged" by ferries.
There are a total of 14 ferries operating along the canal, carrying cars, bicycles and pedestrians free of charge, day and night, from one bank to another, as required by an imperial regulation. For anxious passengers, they are probably the safest means of transport, because over 100 years of history there have been no significant accidents!
Interesting is the translation by ferry always, but you can usually look at one or more ships, which are just crossing the path of the ferry.
