Many people are looking for possibilities to travel by ferry to Denmark from the UK. This is probably due to the now discontinued route Harwich-Esbjerg and the freight route Immingham-Gothenburg on which you could previously travel as a passenger.

Unfortunately, there are currently no direct connections from the UK to Denmark or Norway. Fortunately, there are good ways to travel by ferry to Denmark via The Netherlands.
We tell you how to do that on this page.

Step 2: Get to Denmark

From Amsterdam or Rotterdam, it takes roughly 7 hours to drive to the border between Germany and Denmark. 

If you have to be on the island of Zealand (Sjælland), you can book the ferry Puttgarden-Rodby. The alternative to this crossing is Rostock-Gedser, but it is a little further to drive and is therefore much less interesting.
