Ferries to Germany

One of the biggest and most famous countries in Europe, Germany is the perfect place to visit at any time of year, as well as providing access to the majority of central Europe, including Sweden, Lithuania, and Latvia. Known equally for its beautiful countryside, as well as its rich and stunning cities, Germany is home to a deep history, and a wealth of cultural monuments, as well as easy access throughout the country, and friendly locals who are always willing to lend a hand. With up to 539 ferries running per week, across 12 different routes, and provided by 6 different operators, there is no shortage of ferries to pick from.

There are 6 ports in Germany. Puttgarden port and Kiel port are located on the north coast of Germany and Rostock port is located further east. Rostock port is the most popular in Germany, with 18 daily sailings and ferry connections from Trelleborg, Gedser, Visby and Nynashamn.

Ferry sail durations to Germany can vary between 45 minutes, to 8 hours, to 15 hours and 30 minutes, to 29 hours and 30 minutes, and this variety is due to a number of reasons, such as ferry routes, ferry operators, and external factors such as weather conditions at the time of sail. This means that there is not one exact ferry duration available here, so we recommend checking before you book what your expected sail time will be.

Prices for the ferry to Germany might change depending on the season you want to travel. Cheap ferry tickets are usually available during off peak, outside of the high season. Please visit our special offers page to find all the latest ferry discounts.
