    Whether bikers, cyclists, hikers or motorists, everyone will find something for their taste here. Watching the hustle and bustle or lounging in the beer garden, currywurst fries from the booth or talking about gasoline. Everything is possible.

    The pictures actually speak for themselves. Just like the opposite Hoopte, Zollenspieker is a popular meeting place to just have a look. It is a bit quieter during the week, but it overflows at the weekend, at the booth and while looking at the Elbe. That the ferry always goes back and forth quickly. does the rest.

    Alternative for the return trip:
    from the Goose Elbe (6) via the riding dike to Allermöhe and the Mittlerer Landweg to the Bille (or at the Boberger ponds) and the Schleemer Bach to the subway Billstedt

    The ferry between Zollenspieker and Hoopte exerts a great attraction, on both sides. Some only come here to enjoy the Elbe view.

    Always a good place to go. The bustle of the ferry invites you to linger. In the immediate vicinity there is everything you need for a short break, coffee, cakes, fries, sausage, etc.

    Like its counterpart hoopte is a popular meeting and stopping point. Here is the crossing over the Elbe before Geesthacht possible. Both investors are also popular places to watch the goings on the Elbe.

    The ferry connection between Zollenspieker and Hoopte is the oldest, still active ferry connection in Germany. The first mention of the connection dates back to the year 1252. At that time, the ferry and customs office was about 2 km up the Elbe. The Riepenburg was built to protect the ferry and customs office.

    With the relocation of the Ilmenau estuary to the Elbe, the customs house and the ferry to Zollenspieker were relocated to their present location. Long before the Elbe bridges were built, this was one of the most important connections across the Elbe. Pretty much everyone of rank and name has crossed the Elbe here.

    Until the takeover of Karl Heinz Büchel in winter 1983/84, the ferry was operated by the tenant of the ferry house. Karl-Heinz Büchel, also better known as Captain Kudd’l, started the ferry connection on April 1, 1984 with the old ferry bar and the St. Pauli barge.

    The ferry cream was soon replaced by the Spieker seagull. Today the ferry connection is primarily served by the Hoopter Möwe 2. The Spieker seagull comes as a reinforcement when there is a lot of traffic, e.g. for traffic jams on the A1.

    Between March and November, the ferry operates on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., as well as on weekends and public holidays from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. every 10 minutes.

    The ferry is very popular with cyclists and motorcyclists, and there is also a snack at the pier to strengthen for the rest of the tour.

    A popular meeting point: the Fährimbiss & Bikertreff.
    During the season (from March to the end of November) the ferry snack at the pier in Zollenspieker will be open from 10.00. Here you get coffee and cake, bratwurst, sandwiches, ice cream and much more.
    There are tables with benches and bar tables that invite you to linger on the Elbe. Among cyclists and especially motorcyclists, the ferry snack is a popular meeting place. Sufficient parking spaces for motorcycles are available.

    Located on the southernmost point of Hamburg, the Zollenspieker Fährhaus is characterized by its unique location on the Elbe. Like no other historic building in northern Germany, it represents a piece of Hanseatic history. Its foundations date back to 1252. Not surprisingly, the house was part of many historical events.
    The listed heritage house looks back on more than 765 years of history. Originally built as a toll tower, the building was rebuilt after being destroyed by Lüneburg troops in 1620 the following year. In addition to its function as a guesthouse and rest area, the traditional house also served over the years as a customs station and as a ferry house, at one of Hamburg's oldest Elbfährstellen. With the abolition of the customs office in 1863, the traditional house received its unmistakable appearance with the addition of a dance hall. Since then, the old ferry house with the majestic Elbe view and the old chestnut trees in its beer garden is a popular destination.

    Between Hoopte and Zollenspieker you can currently chauffeur for the three euros (one person with bike) comfortably over the Elbe. Both at the start and the finish, there is not only a snack, but also a great view over the Elbe.

    If you drive on the Elbe side of the dike, the tour will be considerably nicer, but also much more strenuous due to the poorer road conditions.

    The views through the bank vegetation are wonderful; Picnic and swimming is indicated.

    You can take the ferry to Hoopte (Lower Saxony) and the ferry house offers excellent home-style cuisine.
    The ferry pier is a popular meeting point for motorcyclists and there are a lot of beautiful machines to admire.

    It is always much nicer on a ferry than on a bridge and the distance to the ferry is beautiful.
