Port of Rostock


Port and Check in information

The TT-Line ferry connection between Rostock and Trelleborg exists since January 9th, 1992. Since then, the port has been developed further and further, so that today a separate ferry terminal has been created, which is equipped with its own waiting area, a bistro, a barrier-free access, parking spaces and a direct connection to local transport.
