The Baltic region is perhaps best observed on a cruise along the gleaming Baltic coast that will introduce you to Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Poland Russia and more. Discover German coastal locations including Heiligendamm and Kühlungsborn as well as other atmospheric beach resorts. Wander along Sweden's wild west coast and make a memorable stop in Stockholm.

Venture north to the Baltic gem of Estonia and discover the vibrant Tallinn- a perfect cocktail of modern, medieval, sophistication, charm and vibrancy with Baroque palaces and glass skyscrapers.

Baltic Sea It is the largest brackish water in the world and is surrounded by nine states - the Baltic Sea is one of the most popular destinations for a cruise. The routes lead from the German coast to the Baltic States. An east sea cruise is a unique experience because it takes you to some of the oldest commercial cities in Europe, Rostock or Gdansk. The countries bordering the Baltic Sea are Germany, the Scandinavian countries Sweden, Denmark and Finland as well as Russia, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and Poland. There are also numerous islands and inhabited and uninhabited islands. The Scandinavian peninsula is separated by the Baltic Sea from the main landmass of Northern and Central Europe. The southern region of the Baltic Sea is located in the temperate climatic zone, while the regions around Denmark are markedly maritime, the areas eastward lie in the region of the continental climate. Due to the climate, a cruise on the Baltic Sea is recommended especially in the summer months between April and September.

Varied sights of a Baltic cruise

The Eastern Sea region is not only strongly influenced by tourism. It is also of great importance to the economy. Maritime seaside resorts and magnificent Hanseatic cities testify to the past and give the Baltic Sea a unique charm and facet richness. One of the highlights of a Baltic cruise is the visit to St. Petersburg. The second largest city of Russia was founded in 1703 by Peter the Great. The historic city center, a declared UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasts 2,300 palaces, stately homes and castles, and is only exceeded by Venice in this respect. But also the Baltic cities Riga and Tallinn are worth a trip. Another highlight of your Baltic cruise on the up to 459 meters deep inland is the Swedish capital Stockholm. The unique location on the shores of the archipelago gives the city a very special cityscape. Gamla Stan, Stockholm's Old Town, which is situated on its own small islands, invites you to linger with numerous cafes and small boutiques. The royal castle, where daily change of guard takes place, is also in the largely car free and narrow streets characterized old town. But also the Danish capital Copenhagen sweetened with numerous sights and magnificent buildings a land excursion of a cruise through the Baltic Sea. Visit the small mermaid, the city's landmark, or stroll through the Tivoli, one of the oldest amusement parks in the world. The port city is one of the most important metropolises of Northern Europe and was 1996 Cultural Capital of Europe.

Choose the route of your cruise

There are different routes to choose from to explore the Baltic Sea and its surroundings, for example, Norway. Take a small trial cruise from Kiel to Oslo or go on board for several days and travel from Amsterdam to Tilbury in the UK. Explore the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, the two seas of Germany, during an impressive cruise. It is also possible to go on an East sea trip. Also a sailing to/from Iceland is not to be missed.
