The Teepott, built in 1968, is a well known Warnemuende restaurant, I didn't visit as I was saving my appetite for the local speciality Fischbroetchen!The website has loads of interesting photos and historical facts about it's design, decline and resurrection... in English and German. (It seems that in former GDR times one had to know the head...more
My friend knew that it was possible to take the lift to the top of the Hotel Neptun (lift number 4 - The Sky Bar) and see some of the most breathtaking views over Warnemuende and the Baltic coast. When we arrived at the Sky Bar we found it to be closed and undergoing plans for renovation.. it was still possible to quietly walk around, take photos...more
In addition to its other charms as a resort town, Warnemuende has a very nice beach. It is quite wide and long enough for a very pleasant day of sunbathing. The day we arrived was very windy and the water was choppy with strong wave action. The water must not have been very warm (is it ever?) because no one did more than get their feet wet. I'm not...more
Alot of people seem to have a fascination for lighthouses, and if you are one of these, Warnemuende has a rather beautiful one made of brick. Built in 1897, the Warnemuende Lighthouse ("Leuchtturm") rises nearly 100 feet where it can be seen by ships on the Baltic Sea and those on the river. Today, however, it has become quite a tourist attraction...more
Warnemunde, being right on the Baltic Sea, has a lovely wide beach which I'm sure some intrepid people use for swimming. But people also come here to FLY KITES!! The day we were in Warnemunde was mostly sunny and there was a very strong breeze coming off the sea. Warnemunde's beach is "the" place to fly kites and many people were doing just that. I...more
The history of the former fishing village of Warnemunde, now a summer resort area, is inextricably intertwined with the sea and has a reputation for being one of the finest "bathing" resorts on the Baltic. Am Alten Strom is a colorful place, with large and small touring boats, sailboats and the like tied up on the inlet. "Captains" ring little...more
At the base of the lighthouse is Warnemündes famous Teepot (Teapot), a round building with a curved roof, built in 1967/68. Cafes and restaurants offer a unique view of the beach and the sea. On the ground floor the exhibition “Reinhold Kasten – the greatest adventurer of the 20th century” displays 8000 souvenirs and rarities from around the world.more
Warnow, just a little to the west of Warnemuende, is a thriving, modern shipyard - building huge seagoing vessels much larger than the little cruisers usually seen in the waters around the coast here.You can just see the shipyard, in the middle right of the picture, with industrial Rostock in the background.more
Cruises around the harbour and beyond are very popular and local boat owners stand alongside their boats clanging their boat bells and calling to visitors to come aboard. In the summer I guess theres no difficulty attracting tourists but business seemed a little slack when I visited in January, although all the boats appeared to be operational and...more

Given that I have spent a fair sum of money to travel to a foreign country, my first choice of restaurants for lunch would be a local restaurant instead of a McDonald's. BUT, if you can't go another day without a Big Mac and french fries, there's a McDonald's tucked in between the shops and local restaurants right here in Warnemuende. I was not quite as surprised to see McDonald's here as I was in Tallinn, but it was somewhat comforting nonetheless. Sometimes if you're on a budget or pressed for time, McDonald's can be a lifesaver! If you've brought your teenagers along from America, they will definitely appreciate the appearance of the friendly " golden arches." Although there may be some different offerings from what you are used to at home, there will be good consistency around the world in McDonald's hamburgers and french fries!
Favorite Dish: I've been known to really enjoy a filet of fish sandwich, small french fries and a Diet Coke! The Yogurt Parfait and the salads are not too bad either.
To get around you can take the Sightseeing train/bus called Stransbahn. It is a tourist trap, but at least you don't have to walk. The Strandbahn starts at the Alten Strom and travels via the Mühlenstraße and Parkstraße. Thereafter the small train goes along the weather station, the Kurhaus and "die Mole".Operating times:Apr-Oct daily 11.30AM -...more
If, like me, you must take your holiday in January on the Baltic coast of Eastern Germany, make sure you have adequate weather proof clothing... ie thermal underwear, thick socks, several layers and a good windproof coat, hat, gloves scarf etc etc. You see that windsock in the photo?? That was ram-rod straight, the whole time I was there.. not one tiny movement... the wind was so fierce that the windsock was permanently rigid - it's a wonder that bloke could stand at all!

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...more
On the great beach the local Ultimate club Endzonis has for the last 15 years (2008) arrange a great Beach Ultimate tournament named Sunofthebeach. I will recommend it warmly to anybody who loves the great game of Ultimate. The tournament is played as open but most teams are coming and playing mixed.
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...more
