The bike touring bus with bike trailer

The Winsener Elbmarsch supports you on your journey into the countryside

                                                                                 Bridge closure

Since April 19, 2022, the Elbe bridge B 404 has been closed to all vehicles over 3.5 tons. The ELB-SHUTTLE will start its season as usual on May 1st, 2022, but initially without a connection to Bergedorf train station. The journey begins in Niedermarschacht (bus stop “Ernst-Reinstorf-Schule”) and ends in Rönne (bus stop “Rönne, Brücke”). The different timetable given in the flyer is therefore valid from May 1st, 2022 until the opening of the bridge. By the end of August 2022, the ELB-SHUTTLE will probably be able to run the usual timetable to and from Bergedorf train station again.

Route: Bergedorf - Marschacht - Winsen/Luhe - Stelle - Seevetal - Bergedorf

The cycle bus runs every year from May to October at weekends and on public holidays from the Hamburg S-Bahn station Bergedorf to the Winsener Elbmarsch and back. 

With the free bike bus you can easily reach the numerous experience points, from Seeveniederung to the Stover Elbe beaches to the Ilmenau cycle path.

Along the Elbe, into the Elbe marsh as well as up to the town centres of Winsen and Stelle, there is an eight-shaped intersecting route.

The three circuits, each with nearly three hours travel time, can be entered and exited at will; sections can be experienced either by bike or on foot.


The ELB-SHUTTLE is not only a very interesting offer for cyclists, day tourists can also use the free cycle touring bus to visit the many sights along the bus route.


The timetable and the flyer are available for you to download here:  Timetable ELB-SHUTTLE 2022
