Rode the train 3 zones from Bad Doberan to the last stop, Kuhlungsborn which is a seaside resort town. It was early May, so very little people which was nice. A 5-10 min. walk to the beach front promenade while we passed by some little...More

I had visited this railway before but my partner had not. The idea of a railway running through the streets of a town is just fascinating. We obviously took a trip to Ostseebad Kuhlungsborn West and stopped off at Heiligendamm on the return journey. It...More

The most comfortable seats are in the restaurant car. For the price of a cup of coffee you can travel in real style (menu in the photos). The Bad Doberan station is also a mainline stop so if you want to extent your rail experience...More

We took the Mollie on our last visit to Rostock. What a blast - the historic Mollie Steam Train is a steam-powered narrow-gauge railway, operating between Bad Doberan, Heiligendamm and Kühlungsborn over a distance of about 9 miles with the total trip taking about 40...More

This small train steams its way between Kühlungsborn and Bad Doberan. Not a long ride, but a flashback to times that have long passed. You do not have to take the whole tour, there are train stations where you can hopp off, look around, and...More

We took this ride during our cruise stopover in Warnemunde. (a daytrip to Berlin didn"t appeal!) I found it on the internet as part of my research. There was also information on how to buy tickets, as well as bus and train timetables to help...More

Really enjoyed the train. We had arrived in Warnemunde on a cruise and got the bus to here. Only thing was they would only take euros. Perhaps this could be publicised more. We had to find a near by ATM and get the cash. The...More

Fabulous shiny engine, atmospheric carriages. You can stand at the end in the open air and travel through fab countryside including an impressively long line of lime trees. The train goes right through the centre of town with shops and houses on both sides. Great...More

This was fun! Old steam locomotive chugging through town on an hourly basis, and even had a serving wagon :-)

We got the steam train at Bad Doberan to the seaside resort of kuhlungsborn Ost. This steam train goes through the streets of Bad Doberan, which is quite surreal. When we were there it ran every 30 mins. If you've come on a cruise, as...More

Hi Howard, We're coming into Warnemunde on the Celebrity Silhouette on 8/1/2017 and I'd like a little more info on your Mollie train ride. How far did you go? To what city? How long did it take? Was it a good day? Any suggestions? If you also did the Baltic cruise, can you think of any stand out experiences we need to try? Thank you, in advance, for any information you can share.

Could you give me an idea of the cost of this train ride. Was it costly getting connections from Waarnemunde? Was it difficult getting connections. Thank you.

The website molli-bahn is down at the moment, I want to know how long will the journey take and how frequent is the train? I am planning on going to Schwerin in the morning (I also arrive by Cruise at Warenmunde) and wonder if there is time to fit both in a day. (ship arrives at 0700, leaves at 2100)
