Baltic/Scandinavian Adventure: Warnemünde & Kiel

We’ve been to Germany, so our next two ports didn’t quite excite us. Warnemünde & Kiel are ports closest to Berlin and Hamburg, respectively.

When the ship docked in Warnemünde, we decided to take the local commuter train to a nearby town called Rostock. It felt like we were in Vienna, because of the familiarity with the language. The German is also so much easier to understand in Germany than in Austria. Hubs and I could actually understand the locals, which felt great!  Rostock was a cute little town that we walked around and used the public transit before heading back to the ship. On our walk back, we found many intricate sand sculptures that I’ve only seen on T.V prior to this visit. I thought it was really cool to see in real life.

In Kiel, we decided to take a ship organzied excursion to see the region of Schleswig-Holstein. We visited a family run schnapps distillery, a castle, and had a delicious lunch that was attached to a farm (we even got a visit from a chicken during our meal!). Overall, we were glad to have had this experience even though the ship organized tour was a little slower pace for our liking.
