For those romantic oldtimers who would like to take the ferry from Ystad to Swinoujscie
I would like to mention that there is a local train (30 minutes walk to the German border with Taxfree shopping possible along the road in daytime)
from Ahlbeck Grenze.
Motorcars and motorbikes are not allowed at this crossing.
Only pedestrians and bicycles.
The journey is rather relaxed with swift connections via Neubrandenburg towards Stralsund
on never Diesel driven Trains. Price is about EURO 16.- without Bahncarte :-)
Journey takes about 2 hours 30 minutes.
http://www.polferries.pl has the connection from Ystad to Swinoujscie.
There is a 10-15 minutes walk between busterminals in Malmø.
Beware! - Sixpacks of Swedish unopened beercans lost on the pavement has been observed frequently in the rain at night.
You would be well advised to choose Czech, Danish or German beer.
Swedish Ladies lugging their EU quota of 300 liters of beer and 10-20 liters Wodka Gorbachowa are better left alone.
They really really don't need your help.
They are much stronger than you might think and often ill tempered.
For those choosing to travel by car I would like to mention the shopping at Bergen auf Rügen.
It is well adapted to Swedish/Norwegian needs.
Please observe the rather limited German opening hours.

I have not yet received a reply for my approved travel itinerary from Normannenstrasse.
