The Zollenspieker Fährhaus

Our rich history, exceptional team, promising opportunities, and prime location along the Elbe River make our company unique.

The place where we are is absolutely gorgeous.

The Zollenspieker Fährhaus is situated at the southernmost point of Hamburg and is known for its exceptional location on the Elbe River. This historic building holds great significance in Hanseatic history. It is one of the oldest structures in northern Germany, dating back to 1252. Given its age, it’s not surprising that the house has been involved in many significant events throughout history.

Bees from the Elbe River

Discover our honey! The Zollenspieker Fährhaus is proud of housing its own bee colony. Despite initial concerns, the bees have not strayed to the other bank of the Elbe. It appears the bees at the ferry house are just as fond of Zollenspieker as our dear guests.
