Do the ferries not operate on Sunday? When I use google maps to use public transportation, if I am arriving on a Sunday, it does not show ferry service across the Elbe, is this correct? Thanks.

Use the wepage (or app) of the local, public transport provider instead

Service is not 24 h, but should operate on sundays.

Thanks, but even using that site, it does not show the ferry option. I just shows walking across Elbe not using the ferry. But if I do it for a different day, other than Sunday, it shows the ferry option. I guess the ferry does not run on Sundays. Anyone who has used it on a Sunday? Thanks

Which ferry are you talking about? There is a whole network of ferries across the Elbe.

You can find timetables for all of them here

There are in fact a few ferries which do not operate on Sundays.

Okay, maybe the ferry I need does not operate on Sunday. I am trying to get from the airport to Steinwerder cruise port. I am able and willing to walk, but the shortest walk so far is about 50 minutes. We only take carry on, but that seems like a long walk. But, if it is a nice day, we might try it. Alternately, we will take the train to Vessel and then get a cab. Thanks.
