How to get to Sweden by ferry
Ready to leave for Scandinavia? Many people drive to northern Germany and take a ferry there. If you opt for a long crossing from Germany to Sweden by ferry, for example, the popular route Kiel – Göteborg, you will skip a large part of the car journey to Sweden. On board, you enjoy great comfort, good food and a private cabin. Such a large boat is in itself quite an adventure.
If you prefer to drive as much as possible, you can opt for a shorter crossing from Denmark or Germany or take the Øresund Bridge between Denmark and Sweden. Our tip: buy a combination ticket for ferry & bridge.
