Rostock and Warnemunde

We are cruising the Baltic in August and our itinerary says we call at Rostock. Is the cruise terminal at Warnemunde the port for Rostock, or would our ship (Eurodam) actually be docking in Rostock? Are not interested in the long trip to Berlin, so would like to explore the sights in the local area. Hard to plan without knowing where we will be situated.

Warnemünde is the sea side resort of Rostock. And where the (most) cruise ships dock. Albeit not yours.

Your ship docks at the Seaport Rostock. Where e.g. also the ferries dock.

rostock-port.de/en/…port-map.html

The seaport is in Rostock-Peez.

There is also a "Stadthafen" (city port) at the Stadtmitte (city center). But this port can be only reached by smaller boats. Not by cruise ships.

From the Seehafen (seaport) either by bus #40 to Rostock city center and Hautpbahnhof (main train station). Or bus #45 to Lütten Klein and from there by S-Bahn to Rostock Hauptbahnhof or Warnemünde.

Hello abalada,

We'll be at LP41 on Sat. July 6:30-23:00.

How often does bus 40 or 45 run on a Saturday morning and evening?

How long does it take to get to Rostock hbf or Lütten Klein respectively?

Shall the two of us each get a 2-zone bus ticket in the morning, then again in the evening? Does the bus require exact change in Euro cash?

We plan to take RE to Schwerin using the Lander Ticket.

Is there a bus schedule online?

Bus 40 is in first place a shuttle bus to serve the ferry Rostock - Nykøbing Falster

www.intercombi-ticket.de/en/timetable.html

at least a bit on Rostock here in English

intercombi-ticket.de/en/discover-rostock.html

Bus 40 stops only at "Seehafen Fähre". Not at the bus stop "Seehafen".

Timetable for the bus 45 is only published so far till 25. May. Currently there is a bus departing at 06:59 from the bus stop "Seehafen" arriving at 07:10 at Lütten Klein S-Bahn station.

> Shall the two of us each get a 2-zone bus ticket in the morning, then again in the evening?

A single trip inside Rostock is EUR 1,80. Only if it comes to weekly and monthly tickets the fare stages inside Rostock play a role.

www.verkehrsverbund-warnow.com/fares.html

Transport at the evening is even more weak. After 8pm there are only ALTs. Mini buses where you have to call (0381 802 1900) at least 30 minutes in advance that they will operate at all.

> Does the bus require exact change in Euro cash?

No. But fairly exact is preferred.

> We plan to take RE to Schwerin using the Lander Ticket.

This covers also the S-Bahn from Lütten Klein to Rostock Hbf. You can buy the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Ticket from the ticket machines there (or online in advance).

> Is there a bus schedule online?

You can use the DB timetable. At least as soon the bus schedule for past 25. May is online.

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

Start: Seefhafen, Rostock

Destination: Rostock Hbf

Destination: Schwerin Hbf

and select as means of transport "only local transport" to be on the safe side using a Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Ticket.

.

Side note: the core of the now "problematic" connections is that the S-Bahn line which served the station "Seehafen Nord" (near the bus stop "Seehafen") runs since Dec. 2012 no more.

I would however not want to exclude that the cruise company / the port authority do offer for their passengers some extra shuttle services.

Rostock is a lot more interesting than its usual reputation suggests. Here is a bit about what I did in one day there: members.virtualtourist.com/m/f86bd/5cea/ It wasn't a cruise stop but a day trip from one of the coastal resorts. Anyway, I had something like five or six hours to play with, and they were well filled.
