Bike Touring Highlight
Kappeln is a very beautiful city worth visiting. Here there are for example delicious fish. Freshly smoked an absolute treat. Furthermore, there is the chocolate factory for the tasty mouths. At the port excursion boats to wonderful tours on the loop. Highly recommended !!!
On the banks of the Schlei you can cycle well and then strengthen yourself in one of the sweet pubs of the city. Maybe in the restaurant where the "country doctor" has already eaten. These can be found in the city center next to the church. Urgefüüdlich and worth a visit.

The history of the Kappelner Schleibrücke goes back to the year 1867. At the request of many Kappelner merchants a pontoon bridge was built. This 180-meter-long bridge stood on a total of 18 rafts, which made it possible to open the bridge at the deepest part of the loop.The rails of the Eckernförder circular railway ran across the bridge. However, the combination of locomotive and railway car was too heavy for the bridge there, so that the car had to be pulled independently with horses over the bridge. Bridge money had to be paid for using the bridge. Due to climatic and traffic-related adversities, the bridge was regularly damaged.From 1927 the simple pontoon bridge was replaced by a swing bridge. For the new bridge originally the old superstructure of the Lindaunisser bridge should be used, but this was rejected as a subsoil, because the traffic volume around Kappeln had already increased significantly.The construction had a rotatable part that could be opened and was able to carry two 50 tonne locomotives, including 18 tonne wagons.Since April 27, 2000, there is now the present, double-wing double drawbridge in Kappeln, which has since then guided traffic safely between Kappeln and Schwansen.ostseefjordschlei.de/regionen-und-staedte/kappeln/schleibruecke

To look at Astrein when the sailors gather and wait for the bridge to open.
When the boats are through, the bridge closes again and the traffic rolls again.
And all in peace and goodwill. Afterwards a great grill plate in the Aurora, at the meeting table of the country doctor. Great holiday.

The city of Kappeln has had this bascule bridge since 2002, replacing the old swing bridge. Once an hour, the bridge opens the passage for the many boats and ships that are stuck in front of this obstacle in summer. From the "visitor platform" you can look directly into the boats and wish a good trip and wave from "Sehleut" to "Seeleut"!
