"Crossing Trelleborg - Sassnitz"

Good experience with DirectFerries. While we were on holiday we received a notification that our ferry was unable to depart on the scheduled time. We were able to pick a different time. The helpfulness of the staff when our car wouldn't start was also fantastic. But......... tha lady at the check-in desk could have been a bit more friendly. Maybe that was because it was 6.30am.

Trelleborg is a town located in Skane County in the south of Sweden. The town's history can be traced back to 1257 when the town was presented as a wedding gift from the Danish royal family to the Swedish Prince Valdemar. However, the Danes reclaimed the town which was 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.
Trelleborg is often visited by people travelling from Sweden to Germany because of the ferries to Rostock, Sassnitz, and Lübeck - Travemünde in Germany. These ferries began sailing in 1897, with the Sassnitz line; the route to Travemünde was established in 1962, while the line to the former East German city of Rostock was inaugurated after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. The ferries carry both passengers on one-day journeys, 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 Rügen juts out into the Baltic Sea, and its largest town, Sassnitz, is a magnet for visitors and holidaymakers who enjoy the constantly changing sight of luxury yachts, trawlers, passenger ferries and pleasure boats. The harbour wall stretches almost 1.5 km out to sea, and the old part of the town sits at the north east end of the harbour. Just past the harbour, close to a disused ferry terminal, is a U-boat museum featuring, perhaps strangely, the British submarine HMS Otus, which was rescued from a scrapyard in Portsmouth and towed there. The island has an astonishing number of museums – over 40 in all – covering everything from local history to underwater archaeology. There are also many monuments, churches, palaces and stately homes, including graves and tumuli from the island's historic past, and the Ralswiek Palace and Granitz hunting lodge from the 19th century.
As a result of its good connections to the hinterland 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.
