    As can be seen in the photo, the "smallest ferry in Germany" is only operated by a ferry association on weekends between May and the beginning of October. A nice article can be found here:

    Well worth a visit. The operators are extremely nice!

    The opening on May 1st is always a spectacle. Events such as the kite festival or the potato festival also take place there.

    This ferry is actually more of a boat and only runs on weekends or when needed, insofar as: phoning - bicycles are transported with ease.

    Smallest ferry in Germany for people and bicycles. It is always an experience. Especially the season opening on May 1st and the end of the season on October 3rd are always celebrated with a party. Operating time in season only on weekends.

    Smallest ferry in Germany for people and bicycles
    Since May 1, 1993, this small cultural asset has been in operation again as the smallest ferry in Germany and the only hand-operated ferry in Schleswig-Holstein.
    Every year more than 7,200 people take the opportunity to hike or cycle through the beautiful march to cross the "Bundeswasserstraße Krückau" between Seester and Neuendorf in the traditional way.

    The ferry boat was built from oak according to the historical model; the safety regulations currently in force had to be taken into account. For safety there are rescue pillows, first-aid kits, emergency straps and an anchor on board.

    As has been customary in the "land of ferries" for centuries, the transfer takes place in the old seaman's way by so-called "sculling" with a "belt". Here it is important for the ferryman not only to master this technique, he must also be very familiar with the flow conditions. The ferryman must prove this knowledge and ability to an official examination board. For this he receives a driver's license for passenger transport.

    For cyclists and pedestrians from 1 May to 3 October in operation. This is a beautiful place to rest. Even if I'm not over today, at least I had to stop here.

    Rowing ferry; only in operation on weekends! During the week you just stand in front of it and there is no getting through.
