is an important ferry port en route of the 'Vogelflug-Linie'
(Bird Migration Route)
- section Puttgarden-Rødby - on the Island
of Fehmarn. Since January 1st
2003 Puttgarden is a part of the newly founded town
'Fehmarn'. This town covers the whole island.
In 1961 a huge ferry port was build in Puttgarden.
This ferry port got entry into service in 1963
together with the Fehmarn-Sound-Bridge. The old
ferry route from Germany to Denmark between Rostock
and Gedser was located behind the 'Iron Curtain'
and the alternate ferry route from Großenbrode
Quay to Gedser had a too long distance.
