Tips

  • Maik

    Alone a bit awkward. And better take gloves with you.

    Muscle strength is required here.
    Space for a maximum of 6 people. It's a lot of fun 👍🏻👍🏻😀😀😀

    The best way is to travel with several, because it is very difficult to pull the ferry with the long iron chain alone. But even it would work!

    A nice alternative to cross the river.
    It would also be useful to take a pair of gloves with you, as you can better access when pulling on the chain.

    A special experience from April 15th to October 14th.
    The ferry is a yaw cable ferry that can accommodate 6 people with bicycles (in Corona times, a maximum of 3 people, or families, according to the notice).
    With the help of a long chain you pull the ferry to the shore. Once everything is on board, it continues the same way, with muscle power to the opposite bank. Beware, that can make your hands dirty. 😂
    Depending on the current, personal ambition or muscle strength, you can do it alone ...
    .... or not !!!
    There are said to have been cyclists who took an involuntary rest on the lip until reinforcements came.

    Class is to cross the river on its own. For me always a 'must' and a great highlight the ferries on the lip.

    The Lippe ferry cross driver is a great experience, even if two boys do the work.

    Also something for the poor, if already the legs are burdened with the biking!

    If you want to get over alone you have to put on a lot of hands.

    Danger:

    “The Lippe ferry can be used every year between April 16 and October 14 in daylight and with good visibility. If Easter falls before April 16, the ferry will be operational from Easter Saturday. "

    With a little skill, the crossing can also work alone. The only difficult thing is going up and down when nobody is holding on. Tip: For climbing: without bike, get up on the ferry, set up the gate, go down and fetch your bike, pull the ferry again firmly and boldly up with your bike. Before mooring: Open the gate, bump it on land as hard as possible and quickly run the bike on land. Done! 😄 And if not: the ferry can't leave. Do you have to use them again 🥴

    Unfortunately the ferry wasn't there today, probably because of the floods in the last few days. Better to inform in advance ...
