The privately operated passenger ferry connects the eastern bank of the Havel River amidst Grunewald Forest with Lindwerder Island. The ferry crosses as needed and can be called with a bell. The crossing from the mainland to Lindwerder takes only a few minutes. The island can be easily explored on foot via a circular path. Several benches along the way invite hikers to linger and offer a wide view of the Havel River and as far as Gatow, a part of the Spandau district located on the west bank of the river. Lindwerder Island also features a restaurant open from April to October.


The ferry to Lindwerder Island is not operated by the BVG, so public transport tickets are not valid here. A round trip tickets costs € 1 for adults. Children up to 14 travel free of charge. Bicycles and dogs cost € 1 each.
