Anyone living in Northern England or Scotland should consider the Newcastle to Amsterdam crossing as an excellent alternative to the long drive south to the Channel Ports. You arrive in Europe refreshed after a good night's sleep. The ferry port near Amsterdam is just a few kilometres from the motorway network taking you onwards into Europe.

Or you might want to spend some time exploring the fabulous cultural and artistic highlights of the Netherlands. Amsterdam is a beautiful city with its canals and elegant old buildings, and boasts some of Europe's great museums and art galleries.

Just a short drive down the coast from the ferry terminal at Ijmuiden is the Dutch capital, The Hague, and also nearby is the town of Delft, famous for its ceramics. Rotterdam is a lively modern city with some spectacular architecture, great nightlife, and more than its share of museums and galleries.

DFDS ferry crossings Newcastle AmsterdamNo ferry company is currently sailing to a port in Germany, yet Germany is becoming more and more popular as a holiday destination. From the clean sandy beaches of the North Sea and Baltic coasts, through the great forests and mountains, to the balmy shores of Lake Constance and skiing in the Bavarian Alps, Germany has something for everyone, at remarkably good value.

Then there are the great cities of Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, Frankfurt and Cologne with their architecture and sophistication, and small towns which retain their historic character as some of the major centres of European culture. So why not sail to Amsterdam with DFDS, from where it is only a couple of hours' drive to the German border.
