The Chance Jugend Ferry

Committed companies and citizens open up future opportunities for young people.

A real "Bamberg project" for and with disadvantaged young people under the leadership of the Salesians of Don Bosco.

The idea of the citizens' association Mitte to create a transport connection between "Mühlwörth" (at Schleuse 100) and the Villa Concordia is as ingenious as it is simple: A pedestrian ferry

This ferry replaces a pedestrian bridge that, until 1960, connected the island town with the mountain area and is a better solution from an aesthetic and urban planning point of view than the construction of a new pedestrian bridge. Many Bamberg citizens, associations, authorities, craft businesses, companies, foundations and experts from youth welfare are involved in the implementation, realization and operation of the ferry.
