Fehmarn is an island in the southern Baltic Sea, belonging to Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
By boatFehmarn has a harbour, Puttgarden with very frequent ferries from Rødby in Denmark, operated by Scandlines. Sailings take 45 minutes and there are departures every half-hour both day and night.
By carThe island is connected to mainland Germany by a road bridge.
By trainThe island lies along the shortest route from Hamburg to Copenhagen and trains are put on the ferry here. The Danish and German sides have agreed to build a bridge-tunnel across the Belt, but Germany is dragging its feet in upgrading the links from the mainland to Fehmarn on their side for the expected traffic. The current line is single track and not electrified for most stretches.
Puttgarden stationServed by long distance trains which are loaded onto/off the ferry to/from Denmark here.

phone: +49 4371 866 0address: Fährhafenstraße 1, 23769 PuttgardenHotel Dania is the only multi-storey building in Puttgarden and can be seen for miles. It is like a time capsule, where much of the interior is kept like it was during the 1960s. The room where Jimi Hendrix slept hasn't changed much since then. Make sure you get a room to the seaside with an excellent view. In the season Puttgarden may smell of fertiliser, since there are only fields surrounding this small town.
