Transport

Guldborgsund Municipality is the southernmost municipality in Denmark. Via the ferries to Germany (Rødby-Puttgarden and Gedser-Rostock), the municipality is the gateway to Scandinavia and mainland Europe. The two transport corridors E47 (to West Europe) and E55 (to Central and Eastern Europe) passes through Guldborgsund Municipality and provides easy access to Copenhagen (110 km), Berlin (300 km) and Hamburg (180 km). By train it takes 1½ hour to Copenhagen and 3 hours to Hamburg.

Our new business park and transport centre has an ideal location, at the point of convergence for the traffic between Europe and Scandinavia, just where the E47 and E55 traffic corridors meet.

The cargo port of Orehoved at North Falster, close to the railway and next to the business park and the highway, has the potential to become the future commercial port for the entire southern part of the Region Zealand.

Two bridges connect now Lolland-Falster with the island of Zealand. These are the Storstrøm bridge, which is open for trains and cars and the Farø-bridge, which is part of a highway. During the coming 5 – 10 years, a third connection will be built: the Fehmarn Belt Tunnel. A new Storstrøm bridge will also be built to allow high-speed trains accessibility.
