  • "A very long wait!"

    Our ferry over to Bornholm, from Sweden, was fine. It is a lovely comfortable ferry with a good canteen. Unfortunately trying to leave Bornholm was not so smooth! We were booked on the 2.30pm to Ystad but in the morning we rang and changed our time to 12.30pm. We arrived at the ferry terminal at 11 am and waited. At 12.30pm there was still no movement. At 1pm cars from behind us started moving into free lanes and it was mayhem. We thought they were all trying to push forward to get on first and we thought it was strange that there were no yellow jackets around to control the embankment. Eventually we followed, to discover everybody was leaving the terminal. We raced around to the information place to discover the ferry had a technical problem and wasn't coming and by now the next available ferry to Ystad was at 10.30pm!! We then telephoned Direct ferries who said they could get us on the direct ferry to Denmark at 5 pm which would take 5.5 hours. As this was our final destination we agreed. This ferry seems to be a lot older and more of a booze cruise. Groups of people arrived with crates of beer. It was very noisy. After our drive home we eventually arrived at midnight. What a long day. The biggest complaint is that there was no sign or warning of any kind about the lack of ferry. Where were all of the people working at the terminal???????

Ystad Guide

The town of Ystad is located in Skane County in the south west of Sweden. The town's origins date back to the 11th century when the mouth of the River Vassa was settled by families fishing for herring which was became the settlement's main source of income. It was another several centuries before the town was mentioned again when in 1244, a record was made of King Eric's visit to the town with his brother Abel. Shortly after the King's visit a Franciscan Monastery, Grabrodraklostret, was founded in 1267 and later Ystad joined the Hanseatic League in the 14th century. Of particular interest to visitors to the town is one of Sweden's best preserved medieval monasteries, the Greyfriars Abbey. There is also a medieval church in the town, the Church of the Virgin Mary (Mariakyrkan). Both buildings were influences by Gothic Hansa architecture and are excellent examples of Brick Gothic architecture in Sweden.

Ystad today is a busy ferry port, administrative centre and tourist attraction spurred on perhaps because of the town's association with the fictional police officer Kurt Wallender. The creation of Henning Mankell, Wallender is mainly set in Ystad and the surrounding area. The town's ferry port has services to the Danish island of Bornholm and to Swinoujscie (formerly Swinemünde), in Poland.

Ronne Guide

Located on the island of Bornholm, also known as the “Pearl of the Baltic”, Ronne is officially part of Denmark although it is in fact closer to Sweden, Poland and Germany and combines the cultures of the entire Baltic region. Ronne is a great place to escape to and relax whilst taking in its beautiful landscape and immersing yourself in its charming slower pace of life. The city's older districts have been popular with tourists for a number of years and of particular interest are the streets of Laksegade and Storegade which have a number of historic houses that were once home to the city's merchants and noblemen. Popular landmarks include the Bornholm Museum, the Defence Museum, St. Nicolas' Church, the Smedegards Riding School and the lighthouse which was built in 1880. The city is quite compact and can easily be explored on foot.

Ronne is connected to the rest of Denmark and to the outside world by ferry services to Koge, Ystad, Sassnitz and Swinoujscie. There is also a high speed catamaran link to Ystad which connects to a direct train link between Ystad and Copenhagen.
