Ferries to Denmark

Denmark is one of Europe's finest countries with a rich heritage and stunning scenery. Home to the Vikings, the Scandinavian nation is famed for its architecture as well as its history with many buildings being constructed from blonde wood and metal.

Denmark is a fine destination in itself, but its location in the south of Scandinavia means travellers can easily pass into neighbouring Germany by road or take a ferry to Sweden and Norway as well as providing a good link by sea to Iceland and the Faroe Islands.

Denmark is made up a number of islands and although bridges and tunnels have been built, getting around the country by ferry is still convenient and enjoyable.

Copenhagen is located on the east coast of Denmark's largest island, Zealand. A large bridge and tunnel connect the city to Malmo in Sweden, but you can also cross the sea by ferry. Helsingor, just up the coast from Copenhagen, has numerous daily crossings to Helsingborg.

Domestic services also run each day connecting you with Als, Samsø, Bornholm and Langeland.

While the main Danish peninsula of Jutland shares a land border with Germany, it is far easier to take a ferry if travelling from the east of Germany to one of Denmark's islands. Currently, ferries operate daily between Rostock in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Gedser on the southern tip of Sjaelland as well as Puttgarden and Rodby.

Ferries connecting England with Denmark ceased at the end of 2014 having has been in operation for nearly 140 years.

Copenhagen is the main tourist destination in the country. It's most visited attraction is the Tivoli Gardens, a large amusement park that has been open since 1843 and is packed with thrill rides as well as a theatre and stunning exhibition halls.

The Copenhagen Zoo is also much loved and is home to animals from all seven continents, including African lions, polar bears and elephants.

Billund in Jutland is home to the original Legoland as well as the first factory of the famous toy brand. The park has been open since the late 1960s and attracts more than 1.9 million visitors each year. It has more than 40 rides including four roller coasters and a popular area known as Mini Land that features models of landscapes, cities and buildings made entirely out of Lego bricks.

Other popular sights and landmarks include the Lalandia Billund AquaDome and the Little Mermaid sculpture at the Langelinie promenade in Copenhagen.

  • "A relaxing way to travel "

    We booked this journey on-line and looked forward to simple arrival in the port of Stavanger. Firstly the embarkation was chaotic, too many people herded into a crowded corner with no air conditioning. There were unclear directions given, leaving the long queue confused as to who should go forward first, the German group or the others??? The journey itself was good and we enjoyed the scenery. As we tried to disembark we were asked to show our 'boarding cards'?? No one told us we would need them to disembark and my husband couldn't find his. I think the clue is in the name, 'boarding cards'. If you require passengers to show them when disembarking, please advise them in advance! We had not been informed that the Quay was 17 kms from Stavanger centre or that we should purchase tickets for a bus to get there!!!!! The ONE bus that came was then too full to take the 2 of us and other passengers. We were told by the person at the Fjordline information desk, we would have to get a taxi. Why was there only 1 bus for 60 people? 8 of us had to resort to paying for a taxi. This was a stressful experience and costly and we feel Fjordline should recompense us 520 NOK, the cost of our taxi.

  • "Comfortable crossing"

    We had a very smooth efficient crossing from Hirtshals to Langesund. The boat was reasonably comfortable, but not many options for lunch, as most of the food outlets were closed!
