If anyone, would recommend me with the choices of transportation from North of Germany (ie. Lubeck, Hamburg) to Lund? How's about the Ferry? Which website I should search for? Thanks, Aj
With Stena line from Kiel to Gothenburg. And then train to Lund. Gothenburg - Lund is a short hop.
NO NO NO NO Gothenburg-Lund, is not a short trip compared to that you almost pass Lund when comming from Germany. Find a ferry that takes you to Trelleborg or Ystad. Take the train to Malmö and change trains to Lund. The trainride from Malmö to Lund will take only about 20 minutes. You can also take a train from Copenhagen over the bridge. With a bit of investigation you should be able to take a train that goes on via Lund (to Kalmar for example). Taking a train from Hamburg to Copenhagen should not be to difficult. If you're taking a plane to Copenhagen, you should remember that the train from Copenhagen to Malmö stops at the airport before crossing the straight on a bridge. Going all the way to Gothenburg (or Gøteborg) is a MAJOR detour. Jon
which ferry then? Coming from North Germany because that is what is being asked. And in my opinion ferry i mentioned is the easiest.
There are ferries going to Trelleborg from Rostock. Several sites has online booking. TT-line operates on the Travemünde-Trelleborg and Rostock-Trelleborg routes. Scandlines operates on the Rostock-Trelleborg and Sassnitz-Trelleborg routes. For more information, contact: TT-line at www.ttline.de or Scandlines at www.scandlines.com For traintimes (and buses) within Skåne try out http://www.skanetrafiken.skane.se/. The site is in Swedish, but you should manage to find your way. Trouble migth be spelling with the Swedish letters (umlaut) å, ä and ö Gothenburg is halway up to Oslo, so Gothenburg-Lund is NOT a short trip, unles the ferry stops in Malmö. That isn't probable since the ferry goes through Storebælt and not Øresund For a map over some ferry routes try 5stars-of-scandinavia.com/ne... Jon
No no, it's not a short ride from Göteborg. Jon and I live in Malmö, 20 minutes from Lund by train and we receive GERMAN supermarket leaflets and paper advertisments, asking us to take the TT-Line ferries to Travemünde and Rostock and shop in German supermarkets... If you have a car, take the ferry to Trelleborg (Jon gave you the links). If you come by train (or coach for that matter), it could be just as easy to go Lübeck to Copenhagen via the Puttgarden ferries (included in the train ticket) and then hop on a train to Malmö (they run every 20 minutes) - most of the Malmö trains from Copenhagen continue to Lund since it is on the way further north in Sweden for as good as all train lines. They split after Lund...
THank you very much everyone. I am very much impressed by all your replies. Very useful. Ajaree
