Ferries in Denmark

There are lots of ferries in Denmark (known as færger or bilfærger in Danish), which will help reduce your driving time and expenses. It is often cheaper and quicker to take a ferry, than to pay bridge tolls and petrol costs.

Many of these ferries are actually quite short and may only cross a mile or two of water between two points of land, but you would have to drive maybe another hour if they didnt exist.

There are presently 21 different major ferry lines servicing Denmark, most within the country but a few also go to Sweden, Poland, Great Britain, Norway and Germany. Not all the smaller companies are included in that list. Check out International Ferries

You can also leave ferries in Denmark and return to main transportation page.

Ferry Companies in Denmark

Here is a list of the 21 Ferry Companies that operate all the ferries in Denmark.

When booking a reservation on any of the ferries in Denmark, it is always best to use the website versus calling them. If you call they will quite often tell you to make the reservation online. You can actually get better prices online than calling.

Also make sure you understand how early you need to arrive before departure. If you arrive late, you will have to wait for the next ferry.

Below I will give you the various routes and which company services those routes.
