The Schlei ferry Missunde II
Ring twice for the ferry
For over 50 years, the Schlei ferry Missunde has connected the two sides Schwansen (Missunde) and Angeln (Brodersby). On 1 December 2003, after 43 years of service, the Schlei ferry Missunde I has been replaced with today's Schlei ferry Missunde II. Visitors and locals both on two wheels and four wheels gladly make use of this direct Schlei crossing.
The maximum capacity of the ferry pulling itself across the Schlei on steel cable is 45 people per crossing. The yearlong service starts from 6AM to 10PM on weekdays and from 8AM to 10PM on weekends. On 1 January it starts from 10AM.
It's a real experience to ride the ferry. You can even find yourself getting nostalgic while waiting for the slowly arriving ferry – simply enjoy this time of slowness.
If the ferry is on the other side and doesn't seem that it will cross the Schlei any time soon, simply ring the bell and it will come.
The ferry has become well-known in the last years for several small events such as readings and concerts on mild summer evenings. When a chorus of crickets starts chirping and the sun fades down to a clear starry night and the only thing missing is a falling star upon which you can wish to extend your holidays at the Schlei – this is one of those beautiful moments.
