The Molli steam train is just wonderful. The train itself is great and the scenery along the way is just stunning, both of the countryside and the small town it travels through.

Rode the train 3 zones from Bad Doberan to the last stop, Kuhlungsborn which is a seaside resort town. It was early May, so very little people which was nice. A 5-10 min. walk to the beach front promenade while we passed by some little...More

I had visited this railway before but my partner had not. The idea of a railway running through the streets of a town is just fascinating. We obviously took a trip to Ostseebad Kuhlungsborn West and stopped off at Heiligendamm on the return journey. It...More

The most comfortable seats are in the restaurant car. For the price of a cup of coffee you can travel in real style (menu in the photos). The Bad Doberan station is also a mainline stop so if you want to extent your rail experience...More

We took the Mollie on our last visit to Rostock. What a blast - the historic Mollie Steam Train is a steam-powered narrow-gauge railway, operating between Bad Doberan, Heiligendamm and Kühlungsborn over a distance of about 9 miles with the total trip taking about 40...More

This small train steams its way between Kühlungsborn and Bad Doberan. Not a long ride, but a flashback to times that have long passed. You do not have to take the whole tour, there are train stations where you can hopp off, look around, and...More

Really enjoyed the train. We had arrived in Warnemunde on a cruise and got the bus to here. Only thing was they would only take euros. Perhaps this could be publicised more. We had to find a near by ATM and get the cash. The...More

Fabulous shiny engine, atmospheric carriages. You can stand at the end in the open air and travel through fab countryside including an impressively long line of lime trees. The train goes right through the centre of town with shops and houses on both sides. Great...More

This was fun! Old steam locomotive chugging through town on an hourly basis, and even had a serving wagon :-)

You probably can get to Bad Doberan by bus from Warnemunde but I would recommend going by train, and you can get a group ticket for up to 5 people which would cover this journey and your onward journey to Lubeck. A... More
