What a lovely welcome to the island. Ticket is included in the ferryticket. Beter than taking the bus although i'm not sure it's faster. Feels like going back in time in a good way. Children will love the ride.

A lovely trip from the ferry to the centre of Borkum. The only thing is the timing in the mornings is a bit off when trying to catch the ferry back to the mainland.
