Climate friendly travel
By train and without traffic jams comfortably to Rostock-Warnemünde.
In Warnemünde, Rostock's "beautiful daughter," the beach, shipyards and fishing tradition go hand in hand. Meanwhile, the inland Hanseatic city itself offers culture and culinary highlights galore.
Idyllic captain's houses, small fishing boats, dunes and white villas, a promenade with cozy restaurants and cafés - the seaside resort of Warnemünde is a picture-perfect vacation destination. Colorful beach chairs stand on the fine, kilometer-long sandy beach, which at 150 meters is the widest on the German Baltic coast. Warnemünde's landmarks include the 37-meter-high lighthouse from 1898 and the adjacent "Teepott" - the idiosyncratic building was designed in 1968 by Ulrich Müther, a master builder from Rügen, in so-called hypershell architecture and today houses a restaurant, among other things. Not far from the holidaymaker's delight is the seaport for large ferries and cruise ships. A few kilometers inland, Rostock's historic old town awaits with gabled houses along narrow streets, many cozy (fish) restaurants and mighty brick churches from the Hanseatic era. And the seven-towered, pink-painted town hall is enthroned on the former market square - its Ratskeller with good cuisine is considered the oldest inn in the Hanseatic city.
