Train on a Ferry!

During my travels last month in Scandinavia, one the more interesting experience was something I had never experienced before.

(The background of this trip and more information can be found here – Tripping through Scandinavia: Introduction)

Basically, our ICE train from Hamburg HBF to Kobenhavn (Copenhagen) got inside (YES!) a ferry to cross into Denmark from Germany. This happened at Puttgarten to Rodby ferry, one of the few remaining routes in Europe where trains go onto ferries. Never knew that!

This crossing over the Baltic Sea took us about 45 minutes and we were required to leave the train and our luggage, to go up into the ferry whilst it is at sea. The ferry had many cruise ship like facilities: Bars, Restaurants, and Duty free shops (liquor is very expensive in Nordic countries).

I was able to capture my experience and video graph the various parts of it, and put it together,  from going in to coming out of the ferry, in 2 minutes and 16 seconds.

This is certainly something off my bucket list which I never knew existed, and that’s what makes it even more special.

Have a look and tell me what you think?
