Some kilometres north of Rostock, situated at the esturary of the Warnow directly at the coast, you will find Warnemünde. The sea resort is famous for not only its very affectionate and hungry sea gulls, but also for its broad long beach and its lighthouse close to the “Teepott”, both remains from the former GDR. The beach is as much the pilgrims place for the inhabitants of Rostock as it is for tourists. You are likely to find it well-frequented in summer .
How to reach Warnemünde and its beach:
If you are not travelling by car (parking spaces in Warnemünde are crowded anyway in Summer) you can easily reach Warnemünde by train from Rostock in approximately 20 minutes . The great thing is that the train’s terminal is pretty close to the beach since it is situated right in the former harbour area. A walk of around 10 minutes on the promenade along the water takes you directly to the beach area, where you can jump into the baltic sea, ride on a water banana or just lay down and feel the sand on your skin while getting roasted by the sun.
