Warnemunde Beach

Holiday Travel Guide
Warnemunde Beach featuring a beach and general coastal views

Play volleyball, sail or just relax on the sand of this beloved northern beach, once the foremost vacation destination of Eastern Germans.

Understand why Germans think of Warnemuende Beach in the Baltic as a superb destination for a beach vacation. Long and wide and covered in soft sand, the beach is one of Germany’s best-loved sailing destinations, renowned for its calm waters and strong winds. Rent a sailboat and set off. The water may be cold, but it is a welcome relief on a hot summer’s day, especially after a rousing game of beach soccer on the sand.

Relax in the shade in a rented “strandkorb,” a cushioned wicker chair that includes a footrest. It was invented in Warnemuende to shelter visitors from the sometimes intense coastal winds. Buy an ice cream, reportedly some of the best in Germany, from one of the kiosks dotting the edge of the sand. The gentle waves and shallow water mean your kids can safely run wild, splashing in the refreshing water. Sample local fischbrötchen (a fish sandwich) from the grounded boats, former fishing vessels that now feed hungry beachgoers.

Walk along the beach to the western end, which features sand dunes and is open to dog walkers. Traditional German naturists (nudists) like this section. In summer or winter, walk briskly along the sand as you hear the waves crash beside you. Look for the beautiful villas lining the beach. Be alert and you may find some of the Baltic Sea’s famous amber, which occasionally washes up on the shore here. Stroll out to the lighthouse and climb to the top, watching the sunset over the sea as people walk around below you.

Warnemuende Beach stretches along the northern coast of Warnemuende. Take the train from Rostock’s Central Station or drive; either takes about 30 minutes. Walk from the center of Warnemuende in about 10 minutes. Limited parking is available near the beach, but can be especially scarce in summer. The city offers a park-and-ride service from nearby train stations. The beach is accessible all day every day. Rent chairs and umbrellas at the eastern end of the beach.

Best breakfast buffet ever!
"Great location on the beach. Lots of cute shops a few blocks away. The room was clean and modern; just a little on the small side. European bed sizes are different from American bed sizes. We arrived after 8pm but were still able to order dinner at the hotel's casual grill restaurant. The next morning ..."

"More like 3 star. Very expensive but no refrigerator, no front desk dial, no safe and no amenities in room. Extra 30 euros a day for parking and no other option. Good location and breakfast. Some rude staff."
