Passenger traffic

Passenger traffic in Gothenburg is dominated by Stena Line, which is one of the world's largest ferry operators. The Stena Line Head Office is in Gothenburg and the company's ferries are a familiar sight as they moor at the port's inner harbours.

Stena Line's terminals are located in the western part of central Gothenburg. The ferries to Denmark depart from Masthuggskajen whilst the ferries to Germany depart from Majnabbe in Majorna. The central location has proved popular among the 1.5 million passengers who travel to and from Gothenburg on Stena Line ferries each year.

The combined passenger and freight ferries operate a regular service on two routes – one to Frederikshavn in Denmark and one to Kiel in Germany. All ferries shut down their engines when they are docked in Gothenburg and use an environmentally labelled shoreside power supply.
