The German Fährstraße, is a around 250 kilometres long tourist holiday route between Kiel and Bremervörde. It connects around 50 bridges, locks, barrages and ferries among them the two last German transporter bridges in Rendsburg and Osten (Oste) and demonstrates thus nearly all possibilities thought of by man to cross over a water body.

The three different routes (for cyclists, car drivers and water sports enthusiasts) follow the river Oste, the Unterelbe, the Kiel Canal and the Kiel Fjord.
The holiday road is being advertised by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Osteland e.V. with the slogan
'Frohe Fährien im frischen Norden!'
(happy holidays in the fresh north).
The audience of the MDR-TV voted the German Fährstraße as 'Germany's dream Road' on the 8th October 2008 on the 2nd place by 50 nominated German holiday roads...
