Passenger Ferry

A declaration of love for the good old yet ever so modern mode of transportation

The closure of the Hindenburg Bridge to road traffic led to the creation of the passenger ferry "City of Bingen," and the car ferry, "City of Ruedesheim" in 1933. To increase passenger capacity, the cooperative ordered the construction of the MS "Regierungsrat Milatz" (Executive Council Milatz) the same year. Word War II did not spare the Rhine Valley, including the shipyard of the Bingen-Ruedesheimer cooperative. It was not until 1946 that the ferries were operational again.
