TT Line Nils Holgersson

Welcome on board of Nils Holgersson

Our comfortable Sweden ferry has 220 cabins and can accommodate about 700 passengers. Spread over nine decks are four vehicle decks and three decks with cabins and public areas, such as the reception, the restaurant and the Panorama Bar, our TT-Line Shop and many other highlights for a comfortable trip to Sweden.

Our ship was named after the popular main character from the children's story "Nils Holgersson's wonderful journey through Sweden". It was first published in 1906 by the Swedish author Selma Lagerlöf. In it, the story is about the boy Nils from Skåne in southern Sweden, who is lazy and mischievous. For this reason, he is turned into a Thumbelina and flies across Sweden on the back of a goose. After many travel adventures, he returns and is turned back into an ordinary boy because of his bravery and courage.


"Once there was a boy. He was, let us say, something like fourteen years old; long and loose jointed and towheaded. He wasn't good for much, that boy. His chief delight was to eat and sleep, and after that he liked best to make mischief."

Selma Lagerlöf , Nils Holgersson
