    This little ferry connects Weiss with Zündorf. Quaint.

    Quotation from the local newspaper:
    The little ferry Weiß-Zündorf is simply a big movie theater! There, this little boat crunches day in and day out over the Rhine at a speed that my grandma can still easily manage in the backstroke against the current. Then you sit on this same little boat, blinking in the sun and can not understand how great that is.

    Since the ride takes only a few minutes, you have to come up with something around it. The best way to do a bike ride out of it. Just from any Veedel close to the city on the right bank of the Rhine, always head south and when you arrive in Zündorf, first drink a coffee on the picturesque spot. Then by ferry and through the grove in white and the Rodenkirchen beach back towards the city. Voila - a perfect spring trip!

    You get in and think, "Well, if that works well !?", because the name is program. They are as shallow as a crocodile in the water and I'm glad we did not get caught in the swell of a large container ship. They definitely make fun.

    A white institution is the small ferry of ferryman Heiko Dietrich (crocodile, Krokolino) in the right bank district Cologne-Zündorf. The small ferry leads to the excursion destination Zündorfer Groov .. This crossing of the Rhine use in good weather many hikers and cyclists for their trips. The ferry season starts in March and lasts until autumn. In the summer season, the ferry leaves every few minutes, in spring and autumn rarely, sometimes only on weekends.

    The Rhine ferry Weiß-Zündorf, better known as "Krokodil" is one of the Cologne Rhine ferries. The "Crocodile" runs between the towpath in the White Bow and the Groov in Zündorf. The Rhine ferry Weiß-Zündorf has a total of three ships that are in operation, depending on capacity, the eponymous crocodile, the Krokolino and the Frika.

    A practical as well as inexpensive pleasure to change the Rhine side; Crossing by bike for an adult = 2 euros. The ferry leaves about every 20 minutes.

    Faster, cheaper change of the electricity side. Back to .... Cologne or Bonn and drive instead of Wesselinger chemistry.

    The crossing is always great. On the water, everyday life is even further away than before on the bike ride ...

    Great little ferry - something different compared to the big ones. Of course, problematic if you want to over with a whole group over.
