Ferry launches link to Columbus Island

BREMERHAVEN. The “Columbus Hopper” started its service on 11 May. The 40-metre ship offers workers the option to take the ferry across from Kaiserhafen to Nordhafen, and back, in a two-shift operation – Monday to Thursday between 6.30 a.m. and 9.30 p.m. and Friday from 6.30 a.m. to 7.30 p.m. Consequently, the Überseehafen is now, once again, linked directly to the Columbus Island. Following the steel swing bridge accident in April 2021, detours through the city and via the Kaiserschleuse lock became the order of the day.
