The aroma of the big, wide world: you can really feel it on the Skandinavienkai. It's not just freighters that come and go at Lübeck's beachhead. You can also take ferries here to Sweden, Finland and Latvia.

Fancy a trip to the land of the midnight sun?

Ferries sail from the Skandinavienkai, one of Europe's largest ferry ports, to Scandinavia and the Baltic. 

This connection began in 1962 with the Travemünde-Trelleborg line (TT-Linie). The increasing goods traffic between Sweden and Germany necessitated a fast ferry crossing. The ferry service to Helsinki started later that same year. The rail connection to the ferry terminal was created a decade afterwards. Today this is one of the busiest links to Scandinavia and the Baltic.
