Tips

  • THE ROAD IS PINK ( PINKI )

    Ferry GroßenwiedenThe Weser ferry Großenwieden connects the Hess. Oldendorf districts Großenwieden and Rumbeck together.The northernmost high-wire ferry on the Weser is a yaw ferry with a Schottelnavigator as a driving aid. "Yawing" exploits the kinetic energy of the flowing water to achieve the movements of a floating object perpendicular to the flow direction. By taking advantage of the river flow, the yaw ferry has a much lower energy consumption compared to the motor ferry without a significant extension of the crossing times.The ferry is 24 meters long and 5 meters wide and can carry 4 passenger cars with inmates or 45 people. Their load capacity ranges from 11.40 t at high tide to 8 t at low tide. The loading area is 80 square meters.Today's ferry is not only a tourist attraction, for cyclists who ride the cycle path Weser, but brings then and now the farmers to their fields on the other side of the Weser.

    Since the county road was closed because of construction work, we decided for the return trip again for the north side of the Weser.
    With the comfortable ferry that went very quickly. Had to hurry from the last food station pretty much, as the ferry goes according to a strict plan.
    Thus, the approach was there to a "temporary spurt". Arrived just in time, also crossed the crossing.

    If you want to circle the Weser valley from north to south, but do not want to drive the entire loop via Hameln and / or Rinteln, you can take the Grossenwiedener Weser ferry. Taking the ferry across the Weser is always a highlight.
