Ferries from Germany to Lithuania

About Germany:

Germany is a large nation in west-central Europe, known for its spellbinding landscapes, rich history and iconic cuisine.

Aside from the stereotypical Bavarian culture of beer, sausage and pretzels found in the south, Germany is a hugely diverse country, offering something for everyone. The capital, Berlin has architectural masterpieces, the famous black forest covers the west, whilst the Alps on the southern border offer great skiing spots.

Remnants of the country’s long history can be found almost anywhere, too, whether you’re strolling past the Berlin Wall, touring a World War II museum or marvelling at a medieval hilltop fortress.

With a coastline stretching almost 2,500 kilometres, Germany has a wide selection of ports to choose from. There are numerous ferry routes provided to Scandinavia and the Baltic nations, making it an excellent transport hub for northeast Europe.

About Lithuania:

Lithuania is the southernmost of the Baltic States in Northern Europe, with a short coastline on the Baltic Sea.

Gaining independence from Russia after the First World War, Lithuania has since flourished, with an increasing number of tourists unearthing its natural splendour and marvellous cities. Lithuanian landscapes consist primarily of undulating hills, lush forests, glistening lakes and meandering rivers. The coastline, albeit small, is beautiful, and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Curonian Spit, a thin stretch of silver sand, tops the list of Baltic beaches.

The capital is Vilnius, an eastern city characterised by beautiful baroque buildings, cobbled alleyways, endless church steeples and one of the largest Old Towns in Europe. Also, standing elegantly between the Neris and Vilnia rivers, it’s an artist’s dream.

Ferries from a couple of European countries sail across the Baltic Sea to the Lithuanian city of Klaipeda. Regular long-haul crossings are available, so be sure to book some comfortable accommodation.
