Seaside resort of Warnemünde

Of the four seaside resorts – along with Markgrafenheide, Diedrichshagen and Hohe Düne – Warnemünde is the most famous. A former fishing village and “captain’s neighbourhood”, Warnemünde became an in-demand hotspot for beach holidaymakers, cruise liners, water sports enthusiasts and thalassotherapy patients. Take a stroll through the charming alleys and venture a glimpse through the windows at the lovingly maintained and at times crooked captain’s houses.

Warnemünde has much more to offer: fresh Baltic Sea fish, majestic cruise ships and the Warnemünde beach, the crowning glory of any day on holiday. The sand beach, which is 14 kilometres long and the broadest on the German Baltic coast, scores highly thanks to its size, visual attractions and the vibrancy on the promenade.
