Northern European Itineraries
The small port of Warnemünde has a population of less than 9,000. It is the waterfront district of the city of Rostock, though, and can get quite touristy in the summer, when temperatures are in the 70s and there’s little rain. Mostly German vacationers flock to the almost 500-feet-wide sandy beach, the widest on the German Baltic coast. A lot of cruisers, however, will only catch glimpses of the port on their way to the main attraction, Berlin. This metropolis steeped in history draws millions of visitors each year, and justifiably so. You’ll only be able to scratch the surface during a day trip, but there should be enough time to hit all the major sights like the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate, as well as get a feel for this diverse city.
Warnemünde was founded around 1200 as a small fishing village. Nearby Rostock bought it in 1323 in order to have access to the Baltic Sea. Despite being part of a powerful Hanseatic city, Warnemünde remained a poor fishing village up until the 19th century, when it became popular as a Baltic resort. As is the case with many German towns, a number of historic buildings were destroyed by bombs during World War II. After the war, the area became part of communist East Germany until the German unification in 1990. Nowadays, Warnemünde is Germany’s most popular destination for cruise lines.
