Oct 6, 2017 - On To Rostock

Day 26 - Friday 6th October - Rostock, Germany The rain had stopped by morning so we set off around the harbour to visit the U-Boot Museum & the Historic Technical Museum. The U-Boot Museum was simply an old black Russian Submarine which is tied up alongside the quay & you get to clamber your way through from one end to the other. Interesting enough but a bit grubby with a few mannequin figures dressed in sailors uniforms lurking in the shadows. I went on to the nearby Historic Technical Museum to see the displays of the V1 & V2 rockets....

May 25, 2016 - Warnemunde and Rostock, Germany

Arrived early this morning at the port of Warnemunde. Very foggy. This is about 3 hours your train from Berlin. We took a shorter train trip to Rostock. Lots of graffiti on the buildings beside the train tracks. This is truly a lovely city with many beautiful buildings. Wandered along the shopping street and had a hot dog and ice cream cone for lunch. Ice cream not as good as Denmark or Norway but I still ate it (of course). Meals are a lot cheaper to purchase here. We took a cruise back to Warnemunde later in the day and walked along the...

Sep 3, 2013 - Rostock

Today it's time to head out of city, after breakfast I am on my way to the local railway station, and a train north to Rostock on the Baltic coast, despite a local double desk train it's a nice journey and quiet train and after the city it's open countryside, I know the last few weeks have been bad and I am exhausted, it's the first day I have had time to relax for months, I nod off to sleep more than once and it's not even 1000! Rostock railway station is at the end of a long road from the city a tram network connects under the station out...

Jul 11, 2011 - Warnemünde, Germany

The NCL Sun pulled into Warnemünde, Germany as Gaby joined Dad at the gym to continue his football conditioning. Mom and I slept in as usual; beauty like this doesn't just come naturally. We met up for a quick breakfast at the pool deck buffet. Finally at around 10:30, we got off the ship and started our mission to complete a self-guided tour of the port city. It took a good 20 minutes of walking up and down the dock for us to figure out we had to cross a tunnel to reach the boardwalk and the main part of the city.  We strolled through the...

May 24, 2011 - Rostock, Germany

The weathermen promised us sunny and in the 60’s but it was cloudy and misty rain. Our tour was good. Antje, our guide, spoke English very well and we saw Rostock, which is now a very bustling, westernized city (as in TJMaxx, McDonalds and Burger King). But the Kloster zum Heiligen Kreuz (Convent of the Holy Ghost-now a museum), the old walls, the Marienkirche, the Universitatsplatz (University square) are very interesting. We then went to a microbrewery where we got beer and pretzels and a free beer glass. And we took a ferry back to the...

We sailed into Rostock, Germany on Thursday, August 9. Its a beautiful little German town. We are here as part of the Hanse Sail which is an historical event dating back to the 1400's....lots more history to it than that but thats all I know right now. The main square is a pedestrian mall and takes up most of the city center area. Coffee shops, restaurants, ice cream stands etc. abound. To the west end there is fresh market area of flower and fruit stands. Its very pleasant to sit at We entertained the Canadian Ambassador to Germany o a...

Aug 19, 2006 - Cruise: Rostock

We dock in Warnemunde, a holiday resort near Rostock. Nice, sunny and warm, 25 predicted. It was at least that. Breakfast of herrings - several different kinds - yum yum. Even Marta enjoyed them. Our 3-hour tour of Rostock starts at 9:00. Very well informed young female guide. Interesting town, dating back to pre-1200s. Great olde worlde charm with current population of some 1.2M. Would like to have gone back but not really the time. Instead we walked around Warnemunde, a former fishing village, now holiday resort. Population about 6000....
