Maritime Gedser

Gedser is renowned for its harbour and, in particular, the ferry connection to Rostock.

Gedser Marina 

A genuine pearl, situated right by the Baltic Sea, surrounded by stunning nature and with a panoramic view across to the offshore wind turbines at Rødsand, this harbour is truly exceptional. Gedser marina is a modern harbour which offers both a bathing beach and large new activity area for children. From the restaurants on the harbours or the grilling area you can sit and enjoy the view and the sun setting over the horizon. Smaller vessels and vessels with less powerful motors may find it difficult to come into the harbour at night, when there is a strong westerly wind. In such circumstances, the fishing port may be utilised as an emergency harbour.

Gedser Lifeboat station

This is one of Europe’s largest and most modern lifeboat stations. The lifeboat station is also the only one on Lolland-Falster and therefore covers a very wide area. Gedser’s first lifeboat station was constructed in 1925 on the initiative of master builder Hans Hansen and for many years the rescuers assigned to the station worked on a voluntary basis. The new lifeboat station came into service in 1992 and houses ultra-modern rescue equipment. The station has a staff of 11 and conducts around 50 to 87 rescues annually. The municipality has constructed a copy, ’a mini model’, of the real lifeboat station, which is located in the westernmost corner of the fishing harbour. It can be visited 24 hours a day and contains a toilet and shower facility as well as an office/storage room for the harbour master. See more here
