Old River, and through the quaint, narrow streets. You will have the chance to walk over an old swing-bridge that leads to the museum of local history, which displays furniture, household objects and clothing from Warnemunde’s years as a fishing hamlet. Your guide, meanwhile, will offer insights into the town’s interesting past.
After this trip down memory lane, you will continue to the next highlight of your excursion: a visit with one of the locals in his or her home. As you sit down for a chat, you will enjoy a snack of traditional homemade German cake and coffee.
Next, you will stroll along the streets passing some of the town’s landmarks. Perhaps the most famous sight you will glimpse is the lighthouse, built in 1897 and still in use today. You will also see the nearby Teepott (Teapot), with its distinctive curved roof that gives the structure its nickname. A striking example of bold East German architecture, it was built in the 1960s, renovated in 2002 and now houses several restaurants. Then it’s time to say goodbye to your guide and explore Warnemunde on your own or make your way back to the ship independently.
