The Chance-Jugend-Ferry

Committed companies and citizens open up future opportunities for young people

A real “Bamberger project” for and with disadvantaged young people under the auspices of the Salesians of Don Bosco.
The idea of civil society middle, between “Mühlwörth” and the Villa Concordia creating (100 at the lock) a transport connection is as ingenious as simple: a passenger ferry
These ferries are replacing a footbridge which in 1960 made it possible to connect the island city to the mountain area and from aesthetic and urban planning perspective is a better solution than building a new footbridge. At the implementation, implementation and operation of the ferry many Bamberg citizens, associations, authorities, craft shops, businesses, foundations and experts from youth welfare are involved.


During the operating hours the ferry commutes at very short intervals as needed from one to the other bank. Force majeure excludes damages.
