Bike Touring Highlight
The two canal ferries across the Kiel Canal (NOK) operate reciprocally between Nobiskrug and Schacht Audorf. This ensures that, with a small waiting time on each side of the canal, one of the two ferries is always ready to shoot. The NOK is an artificial waterway - the crossing is therefore free.
As a kid, I often just moved back and forth for fun or on the Audorfer side along the canal to the transporter bridge / cycled to come back to Rendsburg.

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 imperial regulations. 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 with the ferry shaft Audorf all, but you can usually look at one or more ships, which just cross the path of the ferry.
