Travel Tips for Bad Doberan

Bad Doberan

by Kathrin_E

"A Brick Gothic Miracle and a Steam Train"

According to legends Duke Heinrich Borwin I. of Mecklenburg had vowed the foundation of a monastery in the very spot where the first stag would be killed on the next hunting trip. While the hunting pasty were still discussing the suitability of the location, a swan flew by and called, "dobr, dobr" - the Slavic word for "good". Stag and swan are depicted in the town's crest. Sculptures of the swan, wearing a crown round his neck, can be seen in front of and inside the church.

In 1186 Cistercian monks founded the abbey, which is the core of today's town. Their church is one of the most remarkable examples of brick gothic on the Baltic Sea coast.

In the late 18th century Doberan became the summer residence of the Granddukes of Mecklenburg. Many buildings in the town centre are from those times.

Bad Doberan's second famous attraction is "the Molli", a historical narrow gauge steam train that runs right through the streets of the town and then on to the seaside resorts of Heiligendamm and K├╝hlungsborn.

Riding the Molli

by Russell_the_Wombat

Trying to find the place with the best view

The train runs through the streets of Bad Doberan. "Runs" is the wrong word, to be honest, the movement is better described as "snail speed".

One street is so narrow that the train fills the whole lane in the middle, then there are the sidewalks and the houses and that's it.

How does an icecream taste if you are sitting in a street cafe one metre away from this stinky steaming thing?

Even worse imagination - what does living there mean to the inhabitants of these houses? Can they ever open their windows?

The train is fun to ride for us visitors but I am not sure how happy the locals are with it!
