The German island of Fehmarn got its first railroad line when the Fehmarn Sound Bridge was inaugurated in 1963.

The railroad station and ferry terminal at Puttgarden were built at the same time. Before that, the ferries had to take a longer route from the German mainland to Denmark.

Fehmarn claims to be "Germany's Sun Island Number One" and does a lot of advertising to attract tourists, but I don't know anyone who has actually taken their vacation there.


Update: After writing this I got on my bicycle and rode over to the bakery to buy some rolls and croissants for breakfast. On the shelf in the bakery where they display leaflets advertising concerts and other local events in our little corner of Frankfurt I also found this leaflet (fourth photo) about "Fehmarn, the sun island" -- so somebody in our neighborhood must have some connection to Fehmarn, I suppose.
