Flexibility at Lake Steinhuder Meer

...even without a car

Do you think that you will be in a fix without a car? Not here at Lake Steinhuder Meer! Several buses take you from one sight to the next. In the summer there is also a bicycle bus, that takes you and your bike around the lake. If you do not want to take the bus, you can also take the ferry operated by the shipping company Steinhuder Personenschifffahrt. Leave you car behind and take advantage of our good connections.

Bicycle Bus 835

More service for cyclists

Take the bicycle bus around the lake: Tourists and day-trippers have the opportunity to use the bicycle bus line 835 if they do not want to ride their bike around the entire lake or they are caught in bad weather. The bicycle bus 835 can be used between April and October. No reservations are necessary as it has enough capacity for 16 bicycles. The trailers are equipped with a ramp, therefore it is easy to load and unload your bike. The bus takes you from Wunstorf to Neustadt and back.

Eco-friendly & Inexpensive

Taking your bike doesn't cost anything, you only have to get a ticket for yourself. For a single trip you need a ticket for one zone. If you want to take the bus several times a day, we recommend the day pass for one person or groups for up to 5 people.

Boat rides

If you want to relax while going from one place to the next, the boats will gladly take you for a boat ride. The regular service connects Steinhude with Wilhelmstein Island and Mardorf during the season. On request, you can also go to weiße Düne or Neue Moorhütte on the northern shore. You can also take your bike with you on this commute. This way, cyclists can cut their way around the lake short. For a nostalgic trip on the lake there are also historic wooden boats available.
