A magnet for visitors in Feldafing opens on Saturday: rose island-captains prior to the start of the season | Feldafing

the roses of The rose island will soon bloom, and, finally, visitors are allowed back on the island in front of Feldafing. The Ferrymen are waiting in the wings. The start of the season falls on Saturday.

Feldafing – a desire, a proclamation was green, a red bar on the Homepage www.roseninsel.bayern a. Since a few days is there a to read: "this is It. From 30.05.2020 the ferry service will start again. Crossing only with the mouth, nose and coverage possible.“ The romantic rides with Zille on the rose island in lake Starnberg are so soon to be possible.

For the Ferrymen Hermann Zillner and Stefan Seerieder the season starts a month later than planned. That you may on the last week of may, the end of los - and-drop, have you communicated to the Bavarian castles and lakes management, says Zillner on demand of the Starnberger Merkur.

With all the negative consequences of the Coronavirus' for the business (Zillner: "We feel like all of the others."): The Timing could be worse. "Many roses on the island are in bloom at the beginning of June," said Zillner. The other day, during a visit to the island, he had seen some colorful flowers. The conditions on the boats will be others – in addition to the mouth guard mandatory distance rules will apply. "The guests will need to bring some patience, as it can take at the Crossings longer, since we may take a lot less people on the ferry," said Zillner.

On 30 Crossings of the Ferrymen come on a good day. About 40 000 tourists visit the island of roses per year. How many will there be in the Corona times, must be seen.

The barges-captains are expected to start in parallel with those of the steamer on the lake Starnberger see your work again. Long floated Zillner and his big cousin Seerieder, the ride for 2016 and tourists to the island of roses, in uncertainty. "It is stupid, if you can't make a clear announcement," said Zillner. This was true especially for wedding couples who want to be on the picturesque island of trust. Some have cancelled, others celebrate only in the small family circle, reported the ferryman – taking ceremonies on the rose island are in principle possible (we reported).

Over the Winter, the captains have prepared the benches on the boats and the bridge. The Pöckinger Zillner had extended in premonition of the late seasonal start his Job at an insurance company in a month. Now he is back in a full-time ferryman.

The hours of operation are daily from 10 to 18 o'clock. A fixed schedule, there is not but. The note on the Homepage reads: "We travel about three to four times per hour. We should be just on the island, so ring the bell, please be at the bell at our jetty. We will pick you up in the next few minutes.“
