Warnemunde, Germany

The very first Baltic place that we visited on our recent cruise was Warnemunde in the former East Germany. Some people took bus trips to Berlin from here, but it was a seven hour round trip for a very short time in Berlin so we opted to stay in the lovely small town and enjoy walking along the beautiful sandy beach. Actually it was really quite warm and we really had a good time here.

I have no idea what it was like during Cold War times but there are now a lot of fairly newly built hotels and the place was heaving with German tourists so it’s obviously very popular with the natives. You can also take a train to Rostock from here if you really pine for a large town or city.

The streets were well planted up with mainly tulips and pansies.

We chose to walk back into the town using the beautiful woodland walk which edges the beach, it got us out of the glare of the sun, a good thing as I had forgotten my sun hat.

The town was very busy but we did manage to get one photo of a typical street with very German looking buildings.

There were some very talented sand sculptors around. Neptune is somehow very Germanic looking don’t you think?

I don’t know how anyone could have the patience to do something like this, especially as they are so fleeting and won’t last long after all the hard work expended on them.

So that was a glimpse of the coastal area of Warnemunde, I’ll leave the park for another post.

  1. I think you made the right decision to enjoy the small town rather than take the long trip to Berlin. The town looks lovely. Those sand sculptures are incredible!

    • Sandra,
      They certainly are, mind you it seems sad that the works are so fleeting, but I suppose if you are a sand sculptor that’s part of the job.
