The most splendid four stars are situated right
on the banks of the Elbe.

The Zollenspieker Fährhaus is located amidst this idyllic scenery. With its unique ambiance, exquisite cuisine and many chill-out areas it provides the perfect setting for special hours. Whether relaxing weekends, great events, successful conferences, or a wellness Sunday in our sauna area: Thanks to our wide range of services we are able to offer you exactly what you are looking for.
