Shore Excursion: Warnemünde and Rostock Walking Tour with Lunch
Stay Local! Discover the enchanting port city of Warnemünde plus the heart of the nearby city of Rostock. On this walking tour, you will stay close to the port and experience Germany with your expert, local tour guide the way it was meant to be: up close and personal. Enjoy a walking tour of the former fishing village of Warnemünde and the Hanseatic city of Rostock. Lunch is included on this tour.
This tour is available for guests docking in Rostock or Warnemünde.
Warnemünde is a quaint seaside town near the harbor entrance to Rostock, one of the city-states of the medieval Hanseatic League. Once a fishing village, it has now become a Northern European destination for travelers and locals alike.
You will meet your guide right off the cruise ship pier, and proceed down the beach promenade, visit the fish market and get great views of the historic gabled houses and the Old Stream boulevard. Afterward you'll make your way to the train station.
A short train ride away, your guided tour of Rostock will include the town hall, the city's main boulevards, and Rostock University, one of the oldest universities in the world (founded in 1419). You will see the Convent of the Holy Cross, as well as the remnants of the medieval wall and gates that used to defend the city. There will be inside visits to St. Marien Church, which is home to the famous astronomical clock and baroque organ.
On your lunch break you will taste a hearty German specialty and have the option to order one of Germany's world-famous beers.
