Located at the southern end of the Danish island of Falster, in the Guldborgsund Municipality in Sjaelland region, the small town of Gedser is Denmark's southernmost town and has a population of around 760. As the town lies on the Baltic Sea coast, its port is very important in the area's economy. Infamously, Gedser was the first landing place of German troops during Germany's occupation of Denmark in 1940. A number of armoured cars and infantry troops hid in the ferry from Rostock and advanced into the harbour as soon as the ship docked, soon followed by another ferry.
The island on which Gedser is located, Falster Island, is in the south east of Denmark and forms part of the Sjaelland region and is administered by Guldborgsund Municipality. The island is home to Denmark's most southerly point, Gedser Odde, near Gedser.
A car ferry route has operated from Gedser to Rostock in Germany since 1995 and is operated by Scandlines. The crossing takes roughly 1 hour and 45 minutes.
The German city of Rostock is the largest city in the north German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and lies around 12 km from the Baltic Sea coast, on the banks of the Warnow River. Founded in 1419, the city's university, the University of Rostock, is one of the oldest in Germany that has been in continuous operation and is also one of the oldest universities in the world. The university's botanical garden, the Botanischer Garten Universitat Rostock, is open to the public and is a lovely place to visit. Drawing on the city's maritime connections, Rostock is also home to the annual Hanse Sail Festival which is where you will be able to see many large sailing ships and museum vessels taken out to sea. The festival is very popular and attracts around 1.5 million visitors each year. Also hosted by the city is the annual jazz festival called Ostee-Jazz (Baltic Sea Jazz) and is held every June.
The city's port is one of the most important ports in Europe and is Germany's largest. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Gedser in Denmark (2 hours), Trelleborg in Sweden (5 hours and 45 minutes, with a super fast ferry travelling to Hanko in Finland with a crossing time of 22 hours.
