Sassnitz-Mukran, February 03, 2020 - A joint meeting of representatives of Mukran Port, Verkehrsgesellschaft Vorpommern-Rügen mbH (VVR) and the local shipping companies will lead to an improved connection of the location to the local public transport system. With this measure, cruise and ferry passengers will in future be able to explore Germany's largest island more easily.
In times of climate change and the idea of sustainability, an increasingly green trend can also be seen in the tourism industry. For the discussion partners, this development is particularly apparent in the declining numbers of guests travelling by car or plane. Especially tourists from the Scandinavian countries increasingly use the existing train and ferry connections. A strong indication is the increase in the load factor and the significantly higher number of departures of the night train Malmö-Berlin via the ferry connection Trelleborg-Sassnitz.
