In the summer months, the ‘Okriftel’ ferry links the Okriftel bank of the Main with Kelsterbach forest.
Pedestrians, cyclists, scooters, mopeds, hand carts and buggies can cross the Main river every Saturday, Sunday and on public holidays from 10:00 to 20:00 on the ‘Okriftel’. The beginning and end of the ferry season are announced via the media.
Due to the restrictions caused by coronavirus, a maximum of six people are permitted to be on the ferry at any one time, in addition to the ferryman. This means that on days when there are a lot of people, queues may build up. The Mayor, Klaus Schindling, would once again like to remind users that distancing and hygiene rules must be adhered to by people when queuing. Wearing a mask is also mandatory on the ferry.
The price for a single crossing is 70 cents for adults and children aged 12 years and over and 50 cents for children aged between 4 and 11 years old. Children under the age of 4 can travel free of charge. Transporting bicycles, scooters, hand carts, buggies and mopeds of up to 50 ccm costs 30 cents more each.
Generally speaking, no crossings take place in heavy rain or frost.
The landing stage is at the boathouse on Jahnallee in Okriftel.
