Karlshamn Klaipeda Ferry reviews

  • "Overnight ferry that saves the long drive through Poland."

    I've used this route several times now to avoid the long drive through Poland. The ships used are now of a higher standard than in the past, with good lounges and bars. The cafeteria offers good value meals , considerably cheaper than other ferries I use. The cabins are clean and comfortable. Mainly carrying freight there is a bit of a wait to unload.

Karlshamn Guide

The Swedish city of Karlshamn is located in Blekinge County and lies on the Baltic Sea coast. The small city has a good number of old timber buildings and museums, galleries, shops and a daily market to visit. Perhaps one of the best ways to explore this pretty, quiet, city is on foot as most visitor attractions are within walking distance of each other. Bus tours are also available. Karlshamn received city privileges and received a Royal Charter in 1664 by King Charles X Gustav who realised the sites strategic location near the Baltic Sea. In honour of the Swedish King the town was named Karlshamn, which means Karl's Port, in 1666.

The city's port is one of Sweden's most important commercial ports. Passenger ferry services also operate out of the port to Kiel in Germany, Klapeda in Lithuania and St Petersburg in Russia.


Klaipeda Guide

The city and port of Klaipeda is Lithuania's only ort and therefore its history and prosperity is inextricably linked to the sea. Popular attractions in the city include the summer Sea Festival and the biennial Tall Ships regattas and the sea museum. The city also has a sea faculty at the local university and is also home to major stevedoring companies. Ever since its establishment by the Teutonic Knights (as Memelburg) in 1252 the city was distinct from the rest of Lithuania. It was ruled by Germans together with the rest of Lithuania Minor. Even its Lithuanian name “Klaipeda”, first mentioned in the 16th century, is believed to mean “Bread eater”.

Visitors to the city should note that it is quite a windy city that experiences many storms during the year which are characterised by sea breezes from April to September and gales in the autumn and winter. It is also not uncommon for snow to fall during the autumn and winter months and can, on occasions, paralyze the city but fortunately the port remains mainly frost free.

Klaipeda's ferry port is located in the south-west part of the city and offers passengers services to Kiel and Karlshamn.
