Sunny island in the Baltic Sea
Fehmarn is Germany‘s third-largest island (185 m2). To the South it is linked to mainland Germany by the Fehmarn Strait Bridge, built as part of the beeline link between Copenhagen and Hamburg including the ferry connection from Puttgarden on the north coast of the island to Rødby on the Danish island Lolland. The crossing takes 45 minutes and the ferries depart every 30 minutes. From Fehmarn you can also go on daytrips to the Lübeck offering a wide variety of historic and cultural attractions or to Kiel, one of Germany’s major maritime centres.
The Island is one of the sunniest locations in Germany, offering a 78 km long coastline, both tranquil nature beaches, cliffs, and lakes. At Burgtiefe and Wulfener Hals to the south the wide sandy beaches have a Caribbean flair and are especially well-suited for families.
Fehmarn is a classified health resort, and at the FehMare Spa Complex at Südstrand you can relax with a view to the Baltic Sea from the roof terrace. Opening hours: www.fehmare.de/oeffnungszeiten.
