    Even if you do not want to go to the other side, just go back and forth and get a taste of the sea air.

    The ferry is like all ferries over the NOK for each person (including cars) for free!
    Coming from Kiel you should change the page again (to Sehestedt-Süd)!

    With this canal ferry is a free canal crossing possible, a mini cruise overlooking the canal and the beautiful church in Sehestedt with its wooden tower.

    The portions in the snack we found huge. We had Currywurst with fries, you could not find the sausage under the mountain fries.

    The construction of the Kiel Canal from 1887 to 1895 was of crucial importance for Sehestedt, as it has separated the village into a southern and northern part for more than one hundred years. With a length of 93.65 km, the canal connects the North Sea at Brunsbüttel with the Baltic Sea at Kiel-Holtenau, thus saving the detour around Jutland from around 250 nautical miles, or around 450 kilometers. While originally strategic reasons were decisive for its construction, today the trade in goods with the states bordering the Baltic Sea and the rest of the world is in the foreground. The canal passage takes about six and a half to ten hours for a cargo ship, depending on the shipping traffic, the lock status and the tide in Brunsbüttel.
    In Sehestedt connects a free-running 45-ton ferry at channel kilometer 75,331 for motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians as a free connection both banks. The channel has for residents and guests alike great attractiveness. Every year, dream ships with sonorous names such as "Europe", "Aidacara", "The World" or even the television dream ship "Amadea" pass the channel. They are regularly expected at Sehestedt by numerous onlookers on lofts on both sides of the canal
    .Current information about the passage times of the dream ships offers the online portal:
