Guests to Sassnitz can visit the Jasmund National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site

The Port of Sassnitz in Germany has joined the Cruise Baltic network, becoming the group’s 32nd partner.

Sassnitz is located in the southwestern part of the Baltic Sea, close to the main shipping routes through the region. It provides access to the island of Rügen, including the Unesco World Heritage Site Jasmund National Park. The island also features seaside resorts with sandy beaches and spas, while the port itself offers the longest outer pier in Europe.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming more cruise guests to the region,” said Thomas Langlotz, the Port of Sassnitz’s managing director. “Sassnitz, Rügen and the surrounding area have a lot to offer, so cruise guests can look forward to plenty of memorable experiences. An advantage for the cruise lines is that Sassnitz has a favourable geographical location that offers the shortest sea connection from Germany to Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic states.”

The Sassnitz city port offers exclusive berthing for small to medium-sized cruise ships. The Mukran Port, located six kilometres from the city port, provides berthing for medium and large cruise ships. The port is accessible without obligation for pilot services and channel navigation.

“Cruise Baltic is proud to welcome Sassnitz back to the network,” said Claus Bødker, director of Cruise Baltic. “The destination has much to offer cruise guests from stunning scenery and sights to relaxation and architecture. It is another unique German destination that, together with the other Baltic destinations, offers cruise guests in the Baltic Sea Region great opportunities for unforgettable holiday experiences.”
