This is a unique way to cross the Nord-Ostsee Kanal. Under one of the highest bridges in Europe is a transporter ferry which takes four cars and as many cyclists and pedestrians as will fit on it every 15 minutes from 5am to 10pm. As it replaces a local road that existed before the High Bridge was built for the... More

The Schwebefaehre is a unique way of crossing the canal. Until I visited Rendsburg first in 1989, I had never heard of such a thing as this. A ferry suspended on cables carrying passengers and vehicles across the canal. It just celebrated it's 100th year of operation and is worth a trip to see this marvel

When I arrived to Rendsberg from Hamburg via train, I was on this bridge. I will say reasonably high to give a nice city view. Later I realized that it has this special facility and is transporter bridge letting people and vehicle cross the canal. Which you will see deep and quite occassionally a container ship will pass. Nice view... More

If you happen to be in Rendsburg, this is something to do. We were lucky and did not have to wait long to cross on the bridge. It allows just four cars at a time.

100 years old in September 2013. A great structure that could be seen as an equal to the Eiffel Tower. It spans the Kiel Canal at Rendsburg carrying the railway on top and a travelling vehicle carrier below. A special experience of times past and today a good way to cross the canal avoiding the current traffic chaos on the... More

It is a bit hard to see it when it takes the way up all the way over the Nord Ostsee kanal, but it is an impressing bridge

Rendsburg itself is a rather bland industrial town and does not offer too much even though the regoin around it offers beautiful places and a lot of beach and sea. But if you go the northern Schlesweig Holstein you will certainly pass Rendsbourg and a small detour to the Schwebefaehre might be a good idea. It will take you aboot... More

It's one of the few still existing in the world and one of the few touristic attraction in Rendsburg!
