A must-see in Warnemünde and honestly you cannot even pass it. Coming from the Pier or the train station you will reach the Alter Strom in a couple of minutes by foot. Stroll around the little shops, enjoy a fish Brötchen, watch people and the sea gulls and enjoy a delicious ice-cream. Don't forget to walk all the way down... More

Of touristy stores and restaurants with the harbor and ships that have become fish shops with interesting dishes from the area. Most people were locals on holiday so the shops had lots of holiday clothes and house hold decorations. There was a weekly art and craft flea market by the lighthouse, but the things were too large for international travel... More

We enjoyed a couple of hours here before returning to our cruise ship after a morning spent in Rostock. It was a lovely, quaint port town with tourist shops and cafes.I really liked the atmosphere and would have loved to have walked down to the beach. Unfortunately a heavy and prolonged rain shower cut short our visit and we made... More

The old stream in Warnemunde was excavated in 1423 and was for almost five hundred years the main shipping route from port of Rostock to the Baltic Sea, when it was replaced with a new one in 1903. Today, the Alter Strom is beautiful fishing port with fish market, good restaurants and popular shops.

Many places in Europe are still cobblestone which is havoc on manual wheelchair users. Warnemunde was not too terrible. We were able to get around to see the sights without too much trouble.

This is a wonderful little port that we visited via cruise ship. This is an excellent spot to tour if you opt out of the long day trip to Berlin. Set up for cruise ship visitors, shops carry a good variety over and above low end souvenirs.

As it happens, Warnemunde was our first port of call on a Baltic cruise. Being still a bit jet lagged, we elected to just have a toddle about town, and the old strand was just what the doctor ordered! Stores full of various tchotchkes, buskers, and a pleasant cappuccino at the ice cafe Venezia and a stroll along the beach... More

The place is charming in the early morning but after 11:00 it gets very packed and commercial. At night it could be dangerous because of drunken people coming out of the bars and looking for fights or even aggress you. So I like it but it's not a must see.
