Focus: History & Spectacular Views
Warnemünde is a popular sea side resort at the Baltic coast which preserved the charm of an old fishing village: colorful fishing-boats return every morning from sea surrounded by white seagulls to sell fresh or smoked fish or fish in a roll, gabled fishermen's and captain's houses with beautifully carved doors line the shore of the Old River, a broad beach invites you to burrow your feet into the fine sand or to relax in a beach chair. What a lovely place to be!
On this tour I will show you the beauty of Warnemünde. We will find out, how long stretched these small looking fishermen's house really are, why fishermen ordered their wives and daughters to stay at home, while Edvard Munch (painter of "The Scream") painted at Warnemünde's beach and what "chicken gods" are. As a special treat we will have excellent coffee and cake with an extraordinary view over Warnemünde and the coast from the highest building in town.
Enjoy a tour with interesting stories and fascinating views!
