On the Baltic Sea route with a stopover in Copenhagen

Consider yourself lucky if you embark on a Baltic Sea trip from Hamburg. As a rule, the shipping route from Hamburg leads down the Elbe to a canal trip from Brunsbüttel to Kiel through the Kiel Canal. It then goes to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki and St. Petersburg. Especially in midsummer, when it hardly ever gets dark over the pool deck during the white nights, it's a very special experience.

Rugged landscape and Hanseatic charm

On Baltic Sea trips you have the opportunity to get to know many different European cities on one route. In addition to maritime charm and historical highlights, the impressive natural surroundings you see on the journey are more than worthwhile.

Scandinavian seaports

From Copenhagen via Stockholm and Helsinki - the Scandinavian cities enchant with their remarkable buildings and mixture of metropolitan flair and serenity.

White nights and golden roofs

When the days lengthen in summer, St. Petersburg's "white nights" seem enchanted. But it is not only the silver shimmering light that fascinates this city. With its numerous golden roofs and magnificent castles, which you can also discover from the ship, you get to know an impressive Russian city.
