Find a ferry in Denmark
Small Danish island ferries
More about transport in Denmark at DailyDenmark.DK
Do people often have to take the ferry, like to commute from one area to the next? Or is it more something one does on holiday?
There are two ways to travel between Zealand and Jutland, either by ferry or via the bridge called “Storebælts-broen”. The water between Zealand and Jutland is called “Storebælt”, which means the “Big belt” – belt is the name for the narrow sea which seperate the two parts. Both ways are used by thousands every day. You will see when you come 😉
That would be fabulous. I hope we do visit Denmark someday!
I travelled on these ferries many times when I was a kid. The one trip I remember was crossing from Kalundborg to Aarhus on a calm sunny evening and Storebælt was like a sheet of glass broken only by a school of dolphins. It was a lovely sight!
These old ferries were so cozy, I too remember how it was to go outside and look at the sea, the waving flag, the seabirds, and people taking sunbath in loungers. TTime enough to eat, take a walk around the ship, read the paper or solving a crossword. These old ferries are gone now, except for one mostly used by trucks, still sailing from Kalundborg. The modern ferries, sailing from ODDEN (close to Kalundborg) are based on speed, they are sailing very fast, it is mostly like being in a bus or airplane. I liked the old ferries more. I found this link with postcards of all the old ferries.
There the ones I remember! (What a fascinating little web site).
The fast cats just don’t have the charm of those lovely old slow boats.
