“What a beautiful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

A short walk from the ship, crossing over the water via a bridge where you can take awesome photos, even with the ship in the background. There was a man, all dressed in white and pretending to be a statue. We had fun watching him and some of the people he touched when they walk pass. The old buildings are beautiful, painted in soft and even some bright colours. There is enough space to walk while you look around and stop to take pictures - not that crowded although there were a large number of people. some of the buildings are still used as houses and they have beautiful gardens with awesome flowers and shrubs. Others are shops, but too expensive for us with our South African money.

“Beautiful part of Warnemunde”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Not to be missed. If you decide to stay in Waremunde, this is a must for people watching, food and strolling. Watch out for aggressive seagulls wanting your food, however it is entertaining to watch!
Many little shops and cafes all at reasonable prices. Best visited after cruise ship hours if possible.

“Full of character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Alte Strom means "Old Channel" and is really the central area of the town, even though it is not in the town centre. Near the station and the cruise terminal, it is packed both sides with open restaurants cooking fish and all manor of seafood. Lots of small shops too, but it is not too touristy and is full of Scandinavian character. One of the highlights of the town - a really great area to stroll around. Just a few meters away is the quaint old town area with lots of photogenic wooden houses.

“Watch the Seagulls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

This was a stop on our Scandanavian cruise. The purpose was for passengers to take the train the berlin, but since we'd been to Berlin already, we stayed local.

It's very picturesque. Several shops and restaurants along the harbor. Although we didn't buy anything other than ice cream, it was nice to walk along the harbor. However, watch the seagulls. I was buzzed (literally, I felt the wind on my head) about three times for my ice cream, and I watched them take one gentleman's bratwurst right out of his hand as he stood by the harbor eating. Bottom line, guard your food.
