Zeebrugge Port Ferry Overview
Zeebrugge is a village on the coast of Belgium and a subdivision of Bruges, for which it is the modern port. Zeebrugge serves as both the international Port of Bruges-Zeebrugge and a seafront resort with hotels, cafes and a beach. Passenger ferry services are operated to Rosyth in Scotland by Norfolkline Ferries and to Hull in England by P&O Ferries. Both passenger terminals are located in the outer port.
Located on the coast of the North Sea, the busiest sea in the world, its central location on the Belgian coast, short distance to the UK and close vicinity to densely populated industrialized cities makes Zeebrugge a crossroads for traffic from all directions. An expressway to Bruges connects Zeebrugge to the European motorway system; one can also get to and from Zeebrugge by train or tram.
The marina is Belgium's most important fishing port and the wholesale fish market located there is one of the largest in Europe. Aside from being a passenger port with ferries to the United Kingdom, the harbour serves as the central port for Europe's automotive industry and is important for the import, handling and storage of energy products, agriculture products and other general cargo.
