Let's go! You can travel to Juist either via the Wadden Sea with the island ferry or by plane. Depending on your needs, one way of travel is more suitable for you than another. In the following, we explain all the advantages and disadvantages of the barrier-free and / or barrier-free journey to Juist.
Assistance getting on and off the island ferry to Juist, escort on the ferry, assistance in the terminal or any other services you might need on the premises of Reederei Frisia will be gladly offered. Please contact the Frisia team at least 48 hours before your arrival, either by email to email@example.com or by phone on 04931 9870. You will find further assistance at the terminals on Juist and in Norddeich. Please inform the staff here at least 60 minutes before departure about the assistance you need.
The journey with the island ferry is free of charge for people with a registered token in their severely handicapped ID. Please show your documents at the ticket office in Norddeich. Your registered companion, your medical companion dog as well as your medical equipment (e.g. wheelchair) will also be transported without further costs.
The ferry terminals on Juist and in Norddeich have both been awarded the "Travel for All" certificate and offer barrier-free WCs.
In addition, the island ferries are also accessible barrier-free (the strong low water, however, there may be a slope on the ramp between the ship and the pier) and offer barrier-free toilets.
On the island parking lots (P3) you will find handicapped parking spaces for which a fee is charged. The shuttle to the Juist terminal is free of charge upon presentation of your disabled ID.
The fast ferries Inselexpress and Töwerland-Express are not barrier-free. Depending on the service you need, you can of course also use the fast ferries. For more information, please contact the Töwerland-Express or the Frisia shipping company directly.
How about a flight over the Wadden Sea? In less than five minutes flight time you will experience the area between Juist and the mainland from a fascinating bird's eye view. Both the airfield in Norddeich and the airfield on Juist are barrier-free and offer handicapped accessible toilets.
Even more service and support: The staff of the island fliers will be happy to help you get on and off the plane, and you will also find manual aids for getting on and off the plane at the airfield. Your wheelchair will also be transported - even free of charge (only without battery, foldable, register in advance: 04931 93320).
The Deutsche Bahn offers a service for people with disabilities, so that the journey by train is not only sustainable, but also relaxed for you:
