What a lovely place to dock at, no need for a ships tour as its right on you door step, just walk under the tunnel and you will come to a wonderful canal with cafe on either side. You can also take the local train to Rockstof if you want to do a bit of shopping although it was bank holiday on the day we went. Read Less

If you don't want to travel to Berlin, you'll have a wonderful day here.  Wander the back streets as well as the main shopping area to enjoy the full atmosphere of this town.  The cafes along the canal are inviting,  for a sunset dinner and people watching.  We found some little shops on back streets with non-tourist goods, such as Goebel porcelain.  On the main tourist drag, we also found exceptional bargains in extra clothing.  There are the usual number of just-souvenirs, but scattered among them are shops locals use, as well as more handcraft goods.You'll find time to go to Rostock, which was heavily bombed in WWII and a keen eye will perceive much evidence of such.  Take the train, which is right by the port, and the ticket includes a transfer to the electric line downtown, less than a half hour for both.  It's well worth going to the Lutheran Church with the medieval astronomical clock, as well as enjoy the architecture overall.  When you are done, head to the river and pick up a one-hour river boat back to Warnemunde.  This port was one of our favorites, being independent travellers.  Inexpensive and easy local transport, and relaxing overall.  Warnemunde can look like a tourist-driven locale or a place to explore North German history and culture.  It's your choice.

Warnemunde is really cute. And it's very convenient to the train station (right at the port.) If you're going to Berlin, however, it's a 3hr ride by bus. Exhausting. That being said, don't let this dissuade from going to Berlin - it's a fabulous city with lots to see. Highly recommended. Read Less

Several passengers really enjoyed an excursion in the more immediate area of Warnemunde. We chose to take a tour of Berlin's Top Ten sights. Bad mistake. Very expensive, didn't get to go inside any buildings. Basically it was a 3 hour train ride on an old train to Berlin, driving around on a bus all day long save for a few stops to take pictures, a totally inedible meal at some buffet in Berlin, more bus, and then another old train back. A very long day (14 hours or so) with not much to show for it but a short fuse. Be very aware, you'll need Euro's to use any public bathrooms (a fact that wasn't explained earlier). Also, if you feel like the Allied Forces were in "the right", your tour guide might rub you the wrong way. All in all, we found the city a hodgepodge of not too attractive architecture - but all very meaningful according to our guide. Surely for $249/person, one could round up a few other people and actually experience the city more fully through another tour company. Read Less

We didn't make the long trek to Berlin, instead took the trains to Schwerin to see the castle. It is a lovely fairytale castle and the gardens are also gorgeous. There isn't much inside it to see though, so it's more about the exterior of the building. Schwerin itself was also very pretty although it's over an hour from Warnemunde (change trains at Rostock). We had a little look around Rostock as well and found it to be quite pretty.   Read Less

NCL came through here. We elected to go to Glasglow and had the best time. Our tour guide was most of the reason. Her name was Durtin. She was an amazing young woman. We saw the castle and catherdale in Glasglow and had a delightful lunch in the countryside. It was one of the best excursion we had ever been on. We spent our time at the town when we got back and enjoyed the beautiful weather and a few Rockstock beers! Read Less

Loved it. Did not bother with an excursion, just walked in- 2 minutes to the town from the harbour. Beautiful little harbour, lovely (busy) beach. Loads of people came out from a bar next to the cruise terminal to wave us off.

This is the port where many people take the 2.5 h train ride for a day in Berlin. We didn't do this due to cost and the fact that we visited the wonderful city only a year ago. So we opted for the City of Dukes excursion which is worth doing to visit the beautiful town of Schwerin (1.5 h drive) and its castle. Warnemunde is a small, uninteresting town with a nice beach. Rostock nearby may be worth more of an extensive visit Read Less

Warnemunde has very little to offer the tourist. If you want to spend the day at the beach you will be happy. Most passengers took the reserved trains to Berlin, a four hour round trip, for an eight hour tour. I chose a bicyle tour of the country side, lunch included. It was brutal for this 65 year old, more miles than I had expected. Read Less

We arrived in Warnemunde at 7.00am and sailed at 8.30pm. As we disembarked there was a young guy giving out maps and selling tickets for the local trains, boats and trams. I would advise just taking the map unitl you decide what you want to do. You may decide to go no further than Wanemunde. The temperature reached 30 degrees, which was great. We decided it was too hot for serious sightseeing, so we walked through Warnemunde main shopping street, which had tasteful souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes etc. then we turned down to the beach. The beach was a lovely long stretch of golden sand. The wicker sunbathing chairs looked quaint. We walked back along the quayside, past a fantastic chocolatier and back to the railway station, where we boarded a train for Rostock. The train took about 25 minutes. We walked into the town centre, but you could get a tram, we just didn't find it, had lunch in a restaurant overlooking the square, had another walk around and returned to Warnemunde by boat. We were a little disappointed in Rostock but it was pleasant enough. Warnemunde was a lovely seaside resort which only payed lip service to foreign visitors. I think that is why it is so charming.

We had a great walking tour around this charming town and stopped into a micro brewery for a local brew and a pretzl. Afterwards we went back to the dock by boat.

We did not spend any time in Warnemunde. We boarded our tour bus for the tour to Berlin. It is a very long drive of 2 plus hours each way to Berlin. Berlin was interesting but extremely crowded in early August. A sporting event was just starting so streets were closed off and traffic was difficult. Glad I went on the tour but certainly would not plan my cruise just because it included the port for Berlin. Other members of our group went to Rostock from Warnemunde and enjoyed it. Read Less

Beautiful and Friendly. We took the train (26 Euros/ 5 persons/ All Day) to Wismar. Had a private walking tour of the city then returned on the train. The walking tour was booked through the Wismar Tourist Information Center, 2 Hours, English speaking guide, 57 Euros. After returning to the port we walked around the area, as there were many sailing ships in the port for the Hanse. They surrounded our vessel as we sailed away from the port. Read Less
