"Cheap and a good choice! "
We traveled from Travemünde to Malmö with Finnlines and found the ticket from Direct Ferries. We got the ticket really cheap compared to Finnlines' own prices at that moment, and just one day before the trip. Everything went smoothly and we will definitely prefer this route again since we saved about 3h of driving, gas, and could enjoy a good night's sleep in stead. Thanks!Read More Read Less
"Returning home to UK"

The German town of Travemunde is located in Lubeck and lies at the mouth of the River Trave in Lubeck Bay. Founded in the 12th century by Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony, when he built a fortress to guard the mouth of the River Trave, the town was later improved by the Danes and became a town in 1317. The town is now the largest ferry port in Germany on the Baltic Sea and since the early 19th century it has been a popular tourist resort. Popular attractions in the town include its lighthouse which dates back to 1539 and is the oldest along the German Baltic Sea coast. Another is the museum ship, the Flying P-Liner Passat, which is anchored in the mouth of the River Trave. Motorised vehicles are prohibited from using the town's main street, Vorderreihe, and the coastal promenade. There are buses that run to the town and the connection point is the train station. Riding a bike or walking is usually preferable as most of the streets are narrow and often get congested with cars driven by inexperienced drivers.
Ferry services from the port depart to Sweden, Finland, Russia, Latvia and Estonia.
The Swedish city of Malmo seems to be centred around its Old Town which is known as the Gamla Staden and is bordered by a lovely canal. In this area there are three squares which are popular with tourists and are surrounded by shops and restaurants. The squares are named Stortorget (Big Square), Lilla Torg (Little Square) and Gustav Adolfs Torg (Gustav Adolfs Square). Other popular attractions in the city is the 15th century Malmo Castle, which is called Malmohus Slott by the locals, the City Hall which overlooks the Big Square and the Turning Torso, which is the tallest building in Scandinavia and is rather eye catching and according to some, bizarre. The city is also a great base from which to explore other parts of Sweden with many tourists choosing to take day trips outside of the city.
The city can trace its origins back to 1275 when it is thought to have been founded as a quay or ferry berth for the Archbishop of Lund.
