Get in

By train

The old train station in Gedser is served by a lone train per day departing Copenhagen in the morning, arriving 2 hours later at early noon and returning around 11AM. there are plans to shelve this route completely, but authorization for this has yet to be granted by parliament, hence the one train, but remember to check if the train is still running if you plan on taking it.

By bus

Movia [3] line 39 connects Gedser with the regions main train station in Nykøbing Falster around once per hour on weekdays, down to 8 departures on Sundays. In summer another option is line 43, also connecting with Nykøbing Falster, but stopping at many of the regions popular beaches en route.

By ferry

The main reason to come to Gedser is the ferry to Rostock in Germany, the most direct route between Copenhagen and Berlin. The crossing takes 1 hour and 45 minutes and is operated by Scandlines [4].
