    One of the smallest and "funniest" ferries across the Kiel Canal at Kiel Holtenau. "How are all the bikes going to fit in there?", But then you'll be surprised how much space this little ferry offers!

    The use of the canal ferries is free, so you can change sides as desired.

    Unfortunately, the ferry does not run so long, but since finally the way was released at the fjord, a great alternative to the high bridge, even though it is faster in the summer due to tourists over the bridge: D

    The vehicle not only looks funny, it is also designed from the inside and with bicycles then an adventure!

    The passenger ferry on the Kiel Canal connects Kiel-Holtenau with Kiel-Wik.

    This small ferry was originally intended mainly for (professional) commuters (pedestrians and cyclists) between Kiel-Wik and Kiel-Holtenau ... but meanwhile it is also a popular way for tourists to cross the NOK on a short / direct / interesting way 😉
    As with all ferries and bridges over the Kiel Canal, the crossing is free of charge.

    It is a quick and easy way to get to the other side

    The free ferries are always a highlight. You always see people driving from one side to the other just for fun. But it pays off. Especially when a large container ship approaches you

    Great little ferry. The ride is free and you can take your bike with you. If there is a lot going on you have to wait once.

    The small ferry Adler I brings you - also with bike - for free on the channel. During the crossing you have great views on all sides of the NOK and the locks. I can clearly recommend a crossing.

    MS Eagle I
    Canal ferry with charm

    She is the "little one" in the big family of the shipping company Adler-ships:
    The "Adler I" was originally in Husum on behalf of the shipping line from the stack and has been working since 1984 as a canal ferry in Kiel-Holtenau. In the summer of 1989 she had her big show: Since the "Adler I" had to step in during renovation work for a while for the famous Rendsburger Schwebefähre. Nearly 50 people have space on the small ferry and are transported reliably and with great charm from shore to shore.
