Between May and September you can imagine thousands of visitors here enjoying the most beautiful countryside - beaches, castles, history - a fine selection of highlights is waiting for you to be discovered.
As a qualified tour guide (Chamber of Commerce, Rostock) I am specialised in guiding in English - other languages available on demand. I love to show you around some of our typical Hanseatic towns - Rostock, Wismar, Schwerin, Luebeck, Hamburg - the Mecklenburg countryside - Bad Doberan, Heiligendamm, seaside resort of Kuehlungsborn and the typical manor houses - Roggow, Gross Siemen, Buettelkow, gardens - Marihn, Siemen, Neustrelitz - and castles - Guestrow Castle, Schwerin Castle, Wiligrad Castle, Ludwigslust Castle. My favourite topics are history, social life and locally produced food - I like to invite guests to private houses for teas and coffees during the tours - time permitting.
Maybe you are interested to trace your family roots then you can be sure I am the right person to deal with. I am very familiar with all regional sources of information like the State Archive of Schwerin enz. Please do not hesitate to contact me!
A Recent Review of this guide
Karin was fabulous. We visited Warnemunde while on an ocean cruise, and wanted to see the local sights. Karin arranged and provided a wonderful tour that met all of our needs, and did so in a professional and friendly manner. We were very pleased with our day, and would strongly recommend Tours By Locals and Karin if you are visiting the Warnemunde area.
