The port Mukran, Germany’s sea port with the geographic and nautical shortest distance to Scandinavia, Finland, Russia and the Baltic states, lies in the north-east of the island Rügen.

The unhindered approach from the Baltic Sea without compulsory pilot service makes the port attractive and cost effective for shipping companies and customers. The water depth of 12.5m and modern berths make the port accessible to almost all ship classes which operate in the Baltic Sea region. Even large cruise liners find here ideal conditions and passengers can make use of a wide range of services.
