The shipping company Scandlines introduces itself
In 1998, Germany and Denmark moved closer together through a merger of their two largest ferry companies. The joint project Scandlines emerged from the German DFO (Deutsche Fährgesellschaft Ostsee) and the Danish Scandlines Danmark A / S. The idea behind this merger was to make the offer for passengers more comfortable, efficient and reliable. With success, today the eight ships in the fleet transport over seven million people and around two million cars on their two traditional routes. The headquarters are in Hamburg. The company is proud of its hybrid fleet, which is far more environmentally friendly than traditional ferries with a pure diesel drive. The vision for the future is: electric ferries without any emissions.
On the Scandlines ferries - depending on the route - you can expect a wide range of dining options with a modern cafeteria, self-service restaurant or buffet. There is more time for enjoyment on the route from Rostock to Gedser. Here you can look forward to an all-inclusive buffet with breakfast, lunch and dinner, drinks included. Those who want can enjoy their time on the sun deck or go shopping in the onboard shop. During the crossing and in German waters you can choose from a wide range of spirits, cigarettes, wine and sweets. A play area and a changing room are available for children. All ships are barrier-free and wheelchair-accessible. In line with the fact that more and more Danish and Swedish holiday homes pets are welcome, Scandlines is also welcoming more and more dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs on board.
