Port of Kiel

Ferries and Ferry Companies Operating
(Kiel, Schleswig Holstein, Germany)

Four ferry companies operate four passenger services out of Kiel to Scandinavian and Baltic destinations.

These are Stena Line, serving Göthenburg; Color Line, serving Oslo; Langeland, serving Bagenkop in Denmark; and Lisco Baltic Service, serving Klaipeda in Lithuania.

Stena Line

Stena Line runs a conventional passenger/car ferry on its Kiel to Göthenburg route, with daily departures and a 13 hour, 30-minute crossing. Stena Line's multi-Pur-Float ferries have excellent onboard facilities and services that are in line with the rest of their fleet. There are shops, restaurants, bars and cinemas onboard, as well as children's play zones.

Color Line

The 19-hour Oslo to Kiel route has been established for two decades and features a daily overnight service onboard Color Line's large MS Kronprins Harald. This huge vessel can carry over 1,400 passengers and several hundred vehicles and manages a top speed in excess of 20 knots. There are quality cabins onboard and a host of facilities, including tax-free shopping, restaurants and cafés, bars, children's entertainment areas and a conference room.

Langeland Ferries

Langeland Ferries operates the shortest service from Kiel to the port of Bagenkop on the nearby Danish island of Langeland. There are two crossings per day between Tuesday and Saturday and just one crossing on Sunday (2 hours, 50 minutes). Onboard facilities are not as extensive as those on the long routes, but excellent nevertheless.

Lisco Baltic Service

Lisco Baltic Service operates the longest route from Kiel to the major port of Klaipeda in Lithuania. The MS Lisco Gloria and MS Lisco Optima sail the 24-hour journey daily and can carry more than 300 passengers each. Cabins are available, along with several eateries, bars and lounges.
