Gorgeous charming area - absolutely do not miss!

Give Rostock a miss and come here, it's oh so quaint and pretty and has got a charming atmosphere and plenty to see and do within a few walkable blocks. It's easy to get to by... read more

Give Rostock a miss and come here, it's oh so quaint and pretty and has got a charming atmosphere and plenty to see and do within a few walkable blocks. It's easy to get to by public transport and both sides of the small harbor are walkable and lined with an array of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and the boats... More

This is a beautiful place to go and just sit and watch the world go by, or even go for a walk. It's beautiful with all of the boats so much to look at you just need a moment to take in the sight, good food and nice people!

Lined with colourful boats and fisherman selling their days catch, this canal runs through the middle of Warnemunde and is a lovely place to stroll around or sit and have a coffee and watch the world go by

This is the picturesque center of Warnemunde, and aside from the beach itself one of the main reasons people in Germany and around like to come here. It is of course entirely oriented towards tourists and ferry passengers, such that even cruise ships visit. There can be really a lot of people around during the peak season. This all being... More

This is a great stretch of canal in a nice, little seaside town. The Alter Storm is a row of restaurants, shops, and scenic spots alongside the boast-lined canal in Warnemunde. It's prefect for a couple of hours of strolling. This is a busy area in the summer, as German tourists come to Warnemunde for their beach getaway. It was... More

We really do not know what to expect here. We arrived by ship and had a day to spend in Warnemunde but did not feel like taking one of the organized trips. After watching where people were going we decided to venture out an see what we could see. We were really surprised, despite the light rain it turned out... More

This is a very pretty walk, with the water on one side and the other side filled with boutiques, patios, gardens, vendors and unique, little houses. On a nice day, it can be packed with tourists and locals enjoying the atmosphere. There are plenty of places to stop for a meal or drink, or you can grab an ice cream... More

A varied river front with numerous cafes/bars/restaurants. Very nice people watching in the sunshine. Street performers and friendly welcome from the locals. I'd advise going to the bars/cafes rather than the takeaway establishments on the barge as, having seen the freshly cooked food in them whilst enjoying a beer, I instead plumped for some fish to eat on the hoof....

I had low expectations for Warnemunde but the waterways were a surprising highlight. Lots of activity, fresh fish pop up restaurants, small boutiques and lots of boat tours make the area a nice place to see
