One Day Berlin Visit
Any suggestions for best approach in seeing some of Berlin when our cruise has one-day stop at Warnemunde in June?
Re: One Day Berlin Visit
You won't see much of Berlin. Getting there takes about 3 hours, and the same back. You'll lose half the day travelling and Berlin is not a city that can be "done" in a few hours.
My suggestion is: stay closer to Warnemünde and visit one or two of the faascinating locations in the surroundings that can be reached with max. one hour travel time - like Schwerin with its palace and 19th century town among a dozen lakes, or one of the old hanseatic towns like Wismar, Stralsund, or even Rostock, or visit the brick gothic abbey church in Bad Doberan and then take the Molli train (narrow gauge steam train) to the seaside resorts of Heiligendamm and Kühlungsborn.
Re: One Day Berlin Visit
I agree with Katrin, Berlin can't be done in a few hours. It is a big city with lots to see. Enjoy the more local places, and save Berlin for a week long trip.
Travel Tips for Warnemünde
Warnemuende from ccruise ship
Usually getting in Warnemuende is by cruise ship. So, my tip for those, that arrive by ship and stay here for 10-12 hours. Cruise ship shore excursions are expensive Alternatively, you may spend all your time in Rostock and Warnemunde, or exploring nearby surrounding by local train - the train station is 100 m near the peer. Another option is to rent a car and go with friends far away, e.g. to Potsdam to nice Sanssouci palace. The trip by car is 2.5 h in one direction, but visit worth your time.
Unfortunately, there is no rent-a-car agency in the Warnemunde port. The nearest one is in Rostock-lutten kleine (7 km) - Sixt, you may use a taxi (12 Euro) to get here.
Take the Train to Rostock
Warnemuende is actually part and parcel of the old Hanseatic town of Rostock. In fact, it is only 10 miles north of Warnemuende making it very easy to hop a local train to get there. The train ride is a short, pleasant one. along the route you will large apartment blocks, garden plats, some with their own little weekend garden huts, the Warnemuende Werft, etc. On arriving at the Rostock train station, if you feel like walking from the train station to the center of Rostock, it is approximately a half mile or maybe more into the old town center. TIP: your train ticket will be good for the streetcar from the train station into the old town center and back and that will save you energy and more time for sightseeing. You will not miss any sights by skipping the walk into the town center.
We arrived on a Sunday, and things in the old town square were pretty quiet. We did find an open Tourist Information Office, but in general we were pretty disappointed there was no activity and everything seemed to be shut down. Of course, maybe we didn't venture enough. If you are in Rostock on a weekday, try to see The Rathaus (Town Hall), Marienkirche, the Rostock Brewery, and the Kroepeliner Gate and city walls.
Purchase your 3 Euro return ticket at the station in Warnemuende (Track 3) and enjoy your ride.

Warnemünde is part of the beautiful Hanseatic city of Rostock. The biggest and most important city in Mecklenburg West Pomerania is a gateway to the Baltic Sea. Both an old and a young city that spreads itself our along the river Warnow.
In the seaside resort of Warnemünde there is also more than just magical coastal scenery and beautiful sandy beaches. It has become a Mecca for swimming, sunbathing, walking and wellbeing. The city offers many meriting experiences from the lighthouse to the fishermen’s huts, imposing cruise liners in the summer and one of the best sailing patches in the world.
The town centre of Warnemünde can be easily explored by foot and offers attractive lanes, lined with old and modern houses, plenty of cafes and restaurants and true hospitality.
During my stay I was surprised as to how charming this little beach town was!

"Warnemünde general information"
Warnemünde can be seen as the coastal suburb of Rostock. In fact Rostock slowly expanded up to the coast. From the Warnemünde harbour you look to the Rostock Überseehafen with the ferry terminals. This is a nice place to visit with ongoing business at the waterside.
Here's a view from the lighthouse over the beach. The big building is the local casino (with the best parking spot in town).
