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

    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 free like all ferries via the NOK for every person (even with a car)!
    Coming from Kiel you should change sides here again (to Sehestedt-Süd)!

    The construction of the Kiel Canal from 1887 to 1895 was of decisive importance for Sehestedt, since it has separated the village into a southern and northern part for more than a hundred years. With a length of 93.65 km, the canal connects the North Sea at Brunsbüttel with the Baltic Sea at Kiel-Holtenau and thus saves the detour around Jutland with around 250 nautical miles, i.e. around 450 kilometers. Originally strategic reasons were decisive for its construction, today the focus is on the goods traffic with the countries bordering the Baltic Sea and the rest of the world. The passage of the canal takes around six and a half to ten hours for a cargo ship, depending on shipping traffic, the state of the lock and the tide in Brunsbüttel.
    In Sehestedt, a free-moving 45-ton ferry connects the banks of the canal at 75,331 kilometers for motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians as a free connection, making the canal equally attractive for residents and guests. Every year, dream ships with sonorous names such as "Europe", "Aidacara", "The World" or the television dream ship "Amadea" pass through the canal. You are regularly expected at Sehestedt by numerous onlookers on logen sites on both sides of the canal
    The online portal offers current information about the passage times of the dream ships:

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