The Eder Cycle Handcar

How about riding a cycle handcar along the ‘Affolderner See’ (Lake Affoldern) on the decommissioned railway line between Affoldern and Hemfurth? A cycle handcar has seating for 4 adults or – depending on the size of the children – 2 adults and 3 children.

There are 4 cycle handcars available, so groups of up to 16 people are able to ride at the same time. Larger groups could be divided: while one group is out riding, a parallel activity may be found for the other.

A ride (round trip) takes approx. 35 minutes. The price per cycle handcar is 12 Euros.

Opening Times
