Megalist of Baltic Sea Ferry Routes 2024

Last Updated


The Baltic Sea is one of the busiest passenger shipping areas in the world. The nine countries bounding the Baltic Sea have well-developed ferry connections to each-other. This list includes all international ferries in the Baltic Sea region. There are some domestic ferries (e.g. in Poland, Germany, Åland Islands etc) which have been omitted for clarity. We've also included some ferries that only start or end in the Baltic Sea, for example some ferries to Norway or Denmark.

As the data shows, the southern Baltic Sea has many more ferries traveling short distances, for example the many crossings between the north coasts of Germany and Poland with Denmark and Sweden. In the northern Baltic Sea, the name “ferry” is used, however “overnight cruise” would be more realistic. Besides the ferry crossings between Helsinki and Tallinn, and a few around the Åland islands, most ferries resemble cruise ships.

Because there are so many ferry operators and routes in the Baltic Sea, this data is in constant motion. Every year new operators and routes come and go. FerryScan takes the guesswork out, providing users a neutral search interface for ferries across the entire Baltic Sea.
