Rodby Guide

The Danish town of Rodby is located on the island of Lolland. It is known for its ferry service to Puttgarden in Germany which is one of the busiest ferry routes in Europe. Large ferries depart every 30 minutes nearly 24 hours a day. The town's port is located around 5 km to the south west of the town centre.

The island of Lolland is sometimes called the "pancake island' in reference to its flatness. The highest point on the island is a mere 25 meters above sea level and is just outside the village of Horslunde. During the Second World War especially the island was a strategic communication highway for the Germans. Today, one of the major sources of income for the island is derived from sugar beet where large numbers of sugar beet fields can be seen.

Popular attractions in Rodby include the aqua park and holiday centre, the Lalandia Holiday Centre, which is the town's largest attraction. There is an Aquadome in the park where guests can enjoy a tropical climate whilst enjoying the water slides and many other water based activities. There are also many restaurants, shops and other children's activities in the park including Monky Tonky Land, mini golf, a ski slope, an ice rink and a bowling alley.


Puttgarden Guide

The German village of Puttgarden is located on the island of Fehmarn and lies on an important sea route between Germany and Denmark. The 18km wide strait, named the Fehmarn Belt, is located in the western Baltic Sea and separates Germany and Denmark. Between 1961 and 1963 a train ferry terminal was built in the village and at the same time the island was connected to the mainland by a bridge. Since the completion of the Great Belt Fixed Link in Denmark, the route via Puttgarden has become less used by trains, but the harbour is still used by Scandlines ferries.

Fehmarn island was part of the Danish Duchy of Schleswig between the Middle Ages and 1864 although when the Duchy was partitioned in 1544 it formed part of the Duchy of John the Elder. When he died without any heirs in 1580, the island became part of the Duchy of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorp. Following the Great Northern War, Fehmarn along with the rest of Schleswig was united with the Danish Crown. In 1864 Schleswig passed to Prussia as a result of the Second Schleswig War.

A ferry service operates across the strait between Puttgarden and Rodby in Denmark with a crossing time of around 45 minutes.
