- Taking your bicycle on boats and ferrys
Bicycles can be taken on all boats by Bodensee-Schiffsbetriebe (BSB), the Constance to Meersburg and Friedrichshafen to Romanshorn ferries, on the Überlingen to Wallhausen service, the catamaran and on the solar-powered ferry. There are some restrictions and we recommend that you call ahead if you are in a group. Tickets for multiple journeys are available for bicycles. Please take note of the information in the respective timetables. For further information, call +49 (0) 7531 3640-0.
Due to the type of boat operated by the Swiss operator Untersee & Rhein on the route between Reichenau Island and Schaffhausen, there is only limited space for bicylces. For further information, call +41 (0) 52 6340888.
