Passengers with limited mobility
Various facilities on the Sylt Ferry ensure that our passengers with limited mobility also have a relaxing trip.
The Sylt Ferry also provides a crossing in comfort for wheelchair users and people with movement restrictions. A lift from the car deck can bring you into the lounge and restaurant, from which you can also reach our Travel Value Shop.
You will also find moveable seats in our restaurant so that you can easily take a place at the table. The ship’s wide corridors and accessible toilets (also in the port) make for a journey with maximum accessibility aboard our “SyltExpress”.
We kindly ask wheelchair users and people with limited mobility to notify us at the ticket counter. We will then allocate a place for your car directly by the lift in the ferry’s car deck, and ensure the best possible accessibility.
