Passengers with limited mobility

Various facilities on the Syltferries ensure that our passengers with limited mobility also have a relaxing trip.


  • Lift from the car deck to the lounge
  • stair-free access ramps to the ship
  • accessible toilets on board
  • wide passageways on the ship
  • moveable seating in the restaurant
  • accessible toilets in the port

The FRS Syltferries also provide a crossing in comfort for wheelchair users and people with movement restrictions. A lift from the car deck can bring you into the lounge and catering area, from which you can also reach our shop area. 

You will also find moveable seats in our catering area so that you can easily take a place at the table. The ship’s wide corridors and accessible toilets (also in the port) make for a journey with maximum accessibility aboard our FRS Syltferries.

Please notify our ticket counter

We kindly ask wheelchair users and people with limited mobility to notify us at the ticket counter. We will then allocate a place for your car directly by the lift in the ferry’s car deck, and ensure the best possible accessibility.
