What a lovely welcome to the island. Ticket is included in the ferryticket. Beter than taking the bus although i'm not sure it's faster. Feels like going back in time in a good way. Children will love the ride.

A lovely trip from the ferry to the centre of Borkum. The only thing is the timing in the mornings is a bit off when trying to catch the ferry back to the mainland.

It was free to use it and they took our bicycles on board too, helpful and free of charge. Nice ride, especially welcome in foul weather. Train takes you straight from the ferry into the middle of town.
