It is possible to walk along the Moles to visit the lighthouse here.. there is also another on the Ostmole! If you visit in winter, make sure you wrap up warmly!! It's freeeeezing! The lighthouses serve the ferries and cruise ships.
Directions: In the Baltic!
The Teepott, built in 1968, is a well known Warnemuende restaurant, I didn't visit as I was saving my appetite for the local speciality Fischbroetchen!
The website has loads of interesting photos and historical facts about it's design, decline and resurrection... in English and German. (It seems that in former GDR times one had to know the head waiter personally to get a table here! Thankfully times have changed!)
My friend actually told me that Teepott translates as Tea cup but..... Tea cup is Teetasse, Tea pot is Teekanne, right,..... But Teepott.....? And the building doesn't look like either a cup or
a pot to me! Clueless.
My friend knew that it was possible to take the lift to the top of the Hotel Neptun (lift number 4 - The Sky Bar) and see some of the most breathtaking views over Warnemuende and the Baltic coast.
When we arrived at the Sky Bar we found it to be closed and undergoing plans for renovation.. it was still possible to quietly walk around, take photos and not disturb the busy architects. Unfortunately, another couple arrived a short time after us and were not so quiet - a member of the hotel staff came and quite rudely told them the bar was closed to visitors and will be reopened in May. We had already taken in as much as we wanted to see and left soon afterwards.
This hotel was designed so that every room would have a sea view - if only they could all be like that :)
Check my travelogue for the stunning sea views!! :))
This building is the meteorological office for the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Baltic region. They read the weather and make the forecasts.
Backfisch Udo boat
"Backfisch Udo" was recommended to us by a local Rostocker! We found the boat on Am Strom and bought a few bread rolls with rollmops and Bismark Herring for 2E each.
Address: Am Strom
.. to see some of the remaining quaint little fishermen's houses (in this case complete with local carrying a ladder.)
Warnow, just a little to the west of Warnemuende, is a thriving, modern shipyard - building huge seagoing vessels much larger than the little cruisers usually seen in the waters around the coast here.
You can just see the shipyard, in the middle right of the picture, with industrial Rostock in the background.
Cruises around the harbour and beyond are very popular and local boat owners stand alongside their boats clanging their boat bells and calling to visitors to come aboard. In the summer I guess theres no difficulty attracting tourists but business seemed a little slack when I visited in January, although all the boats appeared to be operational and running regular services.
Address: Alter Strom
Directions: Sea front
Built in 1898, the 37m high lighthouse can be seen by vessels out at sea up to 30km away!
Address: Am Leuchtturm
Directions: Near the Teepott
The long stretch of golden sandy beach is filled with bathers and those famous beach baskets in the summer. In winter a brisk walk is almost impossible against the wind, but still good fun as there are no tides here to consider.
There are several areas of the beach with disabled access too.
Directions: The Beach!!
