Puttgarden ferry port in Germany connects you with Rodby in Denmark with a choice of up to 48 ferry crossings per day. The duration of the Puttgarden to Rodby crossing is from 45 minutes and the crossing is operated by Scandlines.
Puttgarden is a small village located on the northeast coast of the German island of Fehmarn, bordering the Fehmarn Belt. The port is primarily used as a gateway to Denmark, with 45 minute crossings to Rodby on the Danish south coast.
Puttgarden is the quintessential small port village; quaint, colourful houses decorate the waterfront and greenery encompasses the residential areas. Little activity occurs outside of the port, just the locals enjoying a cup of coffee in one of the local cafes or couples indulging in a leisurely stroll across the sleepy streets. For visitors, the village is primarily used as just a layover before moving onto another destination; there are barely any attractions and only a small handful of hotels, so Puttgarden doesn’t lend itself to a long stay.
There are a few eateries dotted around the small village should you be feeling peckish before your journey; most serve classic German dishes such as sausages and a selection of meats. The cosy streets and warm atmosphere is exemplified by the welcoming locals who will be happy to help you should you need direction.
The village is so small that it is possible to cover the entirety of it by foot, which is the preferred option in the summer months.
Coming from Hamburg, drive along the highway A1, than take the E47 (B207) secondary road directly to the ferry terminal on the island of Fehmarn.
