FRS Syltferry - 60 years Rømø-Sylt
The ferry connection between Sylt and Rømø has existed for 60 years. What began on July 7, 1963 with a small passenger ferry for around 240 passengers as the Rømø-Sylt Fægeri of the Danish Lindinger Reederei developed over the years into a popular travel route for pedestrians, motorists, campers and freight transport alike. Since the late 1970s, the Flensburg-based company FRS (then Flensburger Förde-Reederei and later Förde Reederei Seetouristik) has operated the ferry service. Today, two modern double-ended ferries, the "SyltExpress" and the "RömöExpress", operate on behalf of FRS Syltfähre up to 32 times a day from Havneby to List, taking numerous passengers and their vehicles safely, easily and quickly across the North Sea.
FRS Syltfähre is a 100% subsidiary of the Flensburg-based FRS Group. FRS looks back on a shipping history of over 150 years. Since then, FRS has developed from a regional passenger ship operator to an internationally active group of companies and is today one of the leading specialists in ferry shipping in Europe. FRS operates 70 ships and has more than 2,000 employees worldwide. The shipping company operates numerous national and international ferry and catamaran routes and carries around 7.9 million passengers and 2.1 million vehicles per year. FRS is also active in offshore logistics, port management, crewing and maritime consulting.
