"Crossing was good, food well, bad signs "
Reviewed 24 September 2013 by Anonymous
The crossing was on time, and very quiet. The equipment is very simple, but adequate. The food was not my case but that's a matter of taste. Unfortunately Very bad was the journey to the port of Travemünde, because, unfortunately, lack of signage for Baltic (you drive direction Finland, Norway ...) Unfortunately, the support provided by Stena in this point too low. a detailed directions there is not only an inaccurate Google Maps view. As should be between Travemünde and the correct port about 7 KM a timely arrival to be scheduled. Conclusion: Overall, a nice place to ride, deductions when " trappings "

The German town of Travemunde is located in Lubeck and lies at the mouth of the River Trave in Lubeck Bay. Founded in the 12th century by Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony, when he built a fortress to guard the mouth of the River Trave, the town was later improved by the Danes and became a town in 1317. The town is now the largest ferry port in Germany on the Baltic Sea and since the early 19th century it has been a popular tourist report. Popular attractions in the town include its lighthouse which dates back to 1539 and is the oldest along the German Baltic Sea coast. Another is the museum ship, the Flying P-Liner Passat, which is anchored in the mouth of the River Trave. Motorised vehicles are prohibited from using the town's main street, Vorderreihe, and the coastal promenade. There are buses that run to the town and the connection point is the train station. Riding a bike or walking is usually preferable as most of the streets are narrow and often get congested with cars driven by inexperienced drivers.
Ferry services from the port depart to Sweden, Finland, Russia, Latvia and Estonia.
The ancient city of Liepaja lies on the east coast of the Baltic Sea, between the sea and Liepaja Lake, and has been inhabited for more than 750 years. Liepaja is Latvia's third largest city and the 10th largest in the Baltic States and is known for its music and culture. Popular things to do and see in the city include exploring the Northern Fort by torchlight, take in the architecture of the Military Port or the former prison and wander around the art nouveau buildings in the city centre.
During the less sunny months of the year the city's vibrant cultural life does not stop, because travellers and visitors can attend various exhibits, expositions, concerts and other creative activities. The city is home to the internationally recognized performances of Liepaja Theatre and Liepaja Symphony orchestra.
