Get in

The ferry departs once per week on Wednesday 8pm during the low season (April-June and August-October), and on Thursday 10am during high season (June-August). A return journey to Denmark for instance will set you back €280-590 with a car or €120-250 per passenger, depending on the season, excluding a supplement fare for a cabin or bed. Remember to book in advance, as prices vary a lot.
