ID 1511, Private tour
Your private vehicle and guide will take you on a journey to the Hanseatic city of Rostock and along the Baltic coast, taking in history, landscape and bustling promenades. Explore the historic old town of Rostock with its beautiful market square, gothic city wall and the busy boulevard, also stopping at the university (est. 1419) and the Holy Cross monastery. Be stunned by the astronomical clock in the church of St. Marien - an over 500 year old technical masterpiece. Around noon try a hearty German snack in a local restaurant or beergarden before setting out for the coast.
Your first stop in the afternoon is the medieval Gothic abbey of Doberan with its rare preserved interior. Step back in time and marvel at the architectural, scientific and artist mastership of the monks. The town of Bad Doberan itself was a popular summer residence for the family of the Duke of Mecklenburg. The central square is lined with the historic villas and parlors. Right through it all, the Molli train steams its way towards the coast. Embark on a scenic and nostalgic train ride to Kuehlungsborn, the lively beach resort with its long promenade and many shops, cafés and hotels. Enjoy a stroll along the old villas in the typical “spa style” from the 19th and early 20th century or lean back or enjoy a piece of cake and a good coffee with a view to the sea or the promenade. After this leisurely stop, the tour returns to the port via the scenic coastal landscape.
