The high-frequency ferry service (“Traffic Machine”) between the ports of Rostock and Gedser connects Germany with Denmark. Since 2011 the terminal facilities of both ports have been rebuilt and finally two new RoPax ferries entered service (2016/17). The doubling of capacity also necessitated the adaptation of the hinterland connections of both ports.
