Ferries to Lithuania

Nestling in Europe’s northeast corner is Lithuania, a country filled with baroque architecture, vast lakes and lush forests.

One of the highlights is the ‘Hill of Crosses’ situated just north of Siauliai, a pilgrimage site of 100,000 crosses and giant crucifixes covering a large grassy mound. On a less busy day, it has an eerie atmosphere but it is a truly remarkable sight. It signifies the survival of Catholicism throughout the country’s tumultuous history. In the 1940s, Lithuanians would sneak past Soviet soldiers to stick their cross in the hill as an act of loyalty to their heritage.

The Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania in the capital, Vilnius, is a must see. Originally constructed in the 15th Century, it has since been remodelled over the centuries and you’ll find fascinating artefacts and ceremonial halls inside.

Whilst in the capital, stroll through the Cathedral Square on a Sunday where locals participate in morning Mass. Overshadowed by the Vilnius Cathedral, it also hosts military parades, fairs, public events and is considered the liveliest part of the city.

In the 1960s, the artist and Christian, Vilius Orvidas, created the wonderful Orvidas Garden in Salantai, featuring religious sculptures and carvings. It was an act of religious expression against the Soviet rule.

A testament to Lithuania’s wonderful scenery is the Aukštaitija National Park in the east, which is home to 200-year-old pine trees, 48 species of birds and 160 lakes.

There are daily ferry routes to Klaipeda departing from Karlshamn in south Sweden, which take around half a day and from Kiel in northern Germany, which take slightly longer.

Lithuania reviews

  • "Ferry from Kiel to Klaipeda, Lithuania"

    This ferry is a god-send for those travelling to the Baltic States with their own vehicle. It greatly reduces the amount of driving on some not very quick roads, and instead offers a very relaxing start or finish to your trip. Kiel is easy to get to on the German motorway system, and Klaipeda provides a splendid starting point for investigating what the Baltic States have to offer. The ferry itself is comfortable, immaculately clean, well-appointed with good food and drink options. It ran to time and loading and unloading was hassle-free. Highly recommended.

  • "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.

  • "Kiel to Klaiped in winter"

    Sailed return Kiel to Klaipeda in January 2017. The port layout in Kiel is really odd and you have to pre-check in at the building with your passports and car documents. The car parking is a bit haphazard and I wonder why they cannot follow the example of other ports where you check in with your vehicle and car park / queue is better managed. The boat loading is also not as well organised as other ports and I had to make several reversing maneuvers as they had already loaded lorries on deck leaving too little space to turn down the ramps. It was the same on return. East Europeans don't like to queue and there is a mad rush although first on isn't always first off ;) Ship was clean and cabins were warm (almost too warm) didn't eat on board so can't comment on food. Ship ran on time. It is a fine service but could do with improving deck staff professionalism to German standards.
