Port of Mukran demands better rail connection for ferry
Sassnitz-Mukran (dpa/mv) • Tourist operators on the island of Rügen want to make it possible to travel from Berlin to Sweden by train and fast ferry in seven hours. "Climate-friendly and with few changes, that is our goal," said the chairman of the Destination Rügen - Cruise & Ferry Network association, Thomas Langlotz, on Thursday. In September, a new ferry connection between Sassnitz-Mukran and Ystad in southern Sweden operated by the shipping company FRS Baltic had started with a high-speed catamaran. It takes only 2.5 hours to cover the distance.
