Warnemünde Port Parties
Cruise ships belong to Warnemünde like the lighthouse and the “Alte Strom” (Old Branch of the Warnow River). Locals, tourists and voyagers celebrate some special cruise ship departures in order to properly bid farewell to cruise passengers and ships. For eight years now they have been part of the event highlights at the Baltic seaside resort. Port Parties will also be held this year on four dates at the Warnemünde passenger quay. The organiser of the Port Parties, the event agency Hanseatische Eventagentur, has slightly altered the event concept. The sailing ship “Santa Barbara Anna”, which is moored north of the ferry terminal on pier 1-6, now serves as a stage. Due to the new location, considerably more visitors can enjoy the event in a relaxed atmosphere and all required safety aspects are taken into consideration.
Ship farewells always start at 5 pm. The programme includes a “tugboat ballet”, performances by shanty choirs, professional moderation, a live band and a fireworks display for the departure of the last cruise ship on the respective event day.
Anyone who would like to experience the departure at close quarters should preferably book one of the numerous escort trips on a passenger vessel.
Before the event you can stroll through the seaside resort or visit one the restaurants in Warnemünde for dinner.
