Ostseebad Kühlungsborn Travel Guide
Arrived at Kühlungsborn Ost station and after lunch an easy walk along the prom and then into town to the Kühlungsborn West station for the ride home.Warm sunny day and the beach, sea and a sleep in a strandkorb all very inviting!
Strandstraße is the main street of Kühlungsborn-Ost. Here is where the souvenir, clothes and beach stuff shops are, and also several restaurants and cafes. Go shopping…
Kühlungsborn’s green heart covers about one square kilometre. The town has grown around this piece of forest. The shady paved trails are popular for biking, walking, and all kinds of exercise. There are playgrounds, a rope climbing garden, sports fields and dunno what else.
Seesteg – the Jetty
A seaside resort on the Baltic Sea needs a Seesteg, a jetty where cruise boats can land and from where people can enjoy the view of the sea and the coastline. Kühlungsborn used to have one since around 1900 but the old one had disappeared after the war and 40 years of...
The Sailor’s Wife

Ferris Wheel in Kühlungsborn-West
The ferris wheel is erected on the beach promenade in Kühlungsborn-West during the summer months. The views of the coastline, the town, the sea and the hinterland must be great – yours truly apologizes for being too scared of heights to ride this thing…
Kühlungsborn’s beach promenade has a total length of about 4 kms. It leads along the dunes and the beach, is smoothly paved, wheelchair accessible, and clean enough to walk barefoot if you want. The promenade is for pedestrians only, cycling is not allowed.Little thatched...

Cruises on MS Baltica
There is only one ship, the MS Baltica, that does cruises along the coast from Kühlungsborn. The MS Baltica does - one or two connections per day to and from Warnemünde- a short 1 hour cruise towards Heiligendamm without landing- a longer cruise towards Rerik and Wustrow...
Jellyfish appear at the beaches frequently. It is startling to be touched by something glibbery in the water but most of them are completely harmless. As long as the four rings are white, pink, blue or dark violet there is nothing to worry about. Sometimes you’ll see kids throwing them at each other for fun.
Watch its elegant movements if you meet one in shallow water.
In German they are named Quallen – doesn’t that sound like a lovely glibbery handful of jelly?
There is, however, a bright red or orange variety called Feuerqualle (fire jellyfish) which ought to be avoided because they burn. These are rare but in case you spot one, stay away. They won’t kill you but they give painful burns which take some days to heal.

Bad Heiligendamm is not what you thinking of!
Bad Heiligendamm is the next village east of Kuehlungsborn. I heard it should be great and mostly for rich people. of course you can find Kempinsky hotels which looks great but the beaches are not so good like the beaches of Kuehlungsborn and I don´t like the atmosphere around the Kempinsky hotels so much.
Unique Suggestions: You can go to the Seabridge and if you´ll made a tour with the "Molly train" from Bad Doberan or Kuehlungsborn made a stop for one hour in this village. it´s enough.

Swimming in the Sea
Swimming in the sea can of course be done. How pleasant it is depends on current weather conditions. The weather along the coast cannot be relied upon. I was lucky during my stay!Water (Wasser) and air (Luft) temperature, wind direction and strength are written on amall...
The town got its name from the Kühlung, a ridge a few kms inland. This is a popular area for hiking with beech forests and viewpoints. The highest 'peak' reaches a height of some 130 m above sea level.
