Trelleborg is a town located in Skane County in the south of Sweden. The town's origins date back to when it was presented as a wedding present to the Swedish Prince Valdemar from the Danish Royal family in 1257. The Danes then took the town back which remained under Danish rule until 1658. Trelleborg became an industrial town at the end of the 19th century and this industrialisation has played an important part in the town's development. The town is popular with visitors from Sweden and Germany mainly because of the ferries to Rostock, Sassnitz and Lubeck-Travemunde In Germany. The ferries began sailing to the port in 1897 with the route to Travemunde established in 1962. The ferries carry both passengers on day trips, cars with vacationing families, and heavy trucks on their way through Europe. In 1917, Lenin arrived by ferry from Sassnitz to Trelleborg on his way from exile back to Russia to lead the Revolution.
The island of Rugen protrudes into the Baltic Sea, and its largest town, Sassnitz, is a popular tourist destination and its harbour, which stretches around 1.5 km out to sea, is a magnet for luxury yachts, fishing boats, passenger ferries and pleasure boats. The old part of the town is located to the north east of the harbour and just past the harbour, near to a disused ferry terminal, is a U-boat museum that has amongst its exhibits a British submarine, the HMS Otus, which was rescued from a scrapyard in Portsmouth and towed to the museum. All in all the island has over 40 museums to offer its visitors that cover a range of subjects from local history to underwater archaeology. Also of interest to visitors are a number of churches, palaces and stately homes, including the Ralswiek Palace and the Granitz hunting lodge which dates back to the 19th century.
As a result of its good connections and its geographical proximity to Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic States, the Port of Sassnitz is an important hub for international passenger and goods traffic.
