Sailing like a bird

00 11

Neither aircraft or ship, but maybe nonetheless both parts.

The Kiel Canal (in German: Nord-Ostsee-Kanal or NOK),
known as the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Kanal until 1948,
is a 98-kilometre (61 miles) long canal in the german state of Schleswig-Holstein

The canal links the North Sea at Brunsbüttel to the Baltic Sea at Kiel-Holtenau
of essential importance to the shipping industry where time is money
and saves a lot of time from having to sail north around Denmark.

The canal cuts through the northern german landscape
several bridges crossing along the way including a major highway
and then crosses this old railway bridge the canal in the city of Rendsburg
under the bridge there’s a tiny floating ferry for the local traffic, a real attraction.

      The flying ferry is very exciting – the traffic on the canal is very busy – all kinds of large ships make a shortcut between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea – and all between these ships then crosses the ferry – safely but with urgency the canal… 🙂
