Fehmarn is an island in the southern Baltic Sea, belonging to Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.


Fehmarn is a flat island, sharing its name with Fehmarn Belt, which separates Germany from Denmark.

Get in[edit]

By boat[edit]

Fehmarn has a harbour, Puttgarden with very frequent ferries from Rødby in Denmark, operated by Scandlines. Sailings take 45 minutes and there are departures every half hour both day and night.

By car[edit]

The island is connected to mainland Germany by a road bridge.

By train[edit]

The island lies along the shortest route from Hamburg to Copenhagen and trains are put on the ferry here. The Danish and German sides have agreed to build a bridge-tunnel across the Belt, but Germany is currently dragging its feet in upgrading the links from the mainland to Fehmarn on their side for the expected traffic. The current line is single track and not electrified for most stretches.
