Warnemünde - Rostock - Statsi Prison - Güstrow - Warnemünde

Would you help me with an agenda? Is there any possbility (I am directionally and train bus schedule challenged) Here is what I would like to do:

- Warnemünde Port (yes, I'm on a cruise ship....)

- Visit Statsi Prison in Rostock

- Visit Güstrow (I don't think we have time for Lübeck)

- Return to Warnemünde.

We have from 6 AM (ideally) until 1O PM.

We have limited German, but love to take trains, buses, and appreciate what there is to see and enjoy.

Thank you so much for your response.

mit freundlichen Grüßen

Ellen G

In terms of direction, does this agenda make sense?

Is there a better approach?

- Warnemünde Port

- Visit Statsi Prison in Rostock

- Visit Güstrow (I don't think we have time for Lübeck)

- Return to Warnemünde.

We have from 9 a.m. until 1O PM (22:00)

Danke,

Ellen.

Stasi prison is between Rostock Hbf (main train station) and the old city center). There are direct S-Bahn trains serving the route Warnemünde - Rostock Hbf - Güstrow. Thus the order plays no role. But have the opening hours of the Stasi prison in mind.

…bund.de/DE/InDerRegion/Rostock/Veranstaltun…

March - October

Tu-Fr 10am-6pm

Sa 10am-5pm

closed on Sundays, Mondays and public holidays

English tours are offered on (advanced) request.

> Warnemünde Port

better use the term cruise center instead of port. The cruise center is next to Warnemünde train station. The port of Rostock where e.g. the ferries dock is on the other side of the river Warnow seen from Warnemünde.

Lübeck is lovely and there's much more to see then at Rostock.

But because you have less then 12 hours, you would just have to pick Lübeck, because the train will need 1:45 h each way.

or

you you stay with your agenda.

But I would leave Warnemünde for the end of the day and take the train to Rostock and visit the Stasi Prison.

The train will only need 18minutes and the Stasi Prison is onlyl a 10minutes walk away.

Then you could go back to Rostock central station and take a train to Güstrow -the trains will only need 22-31 minutes.

After discovering Güstrow I would go back to Warnemünde, enjoy an icecream or Fischbrötchen and discover this nice little town.

Thank you all for such excellent information. This is so exciting!

Do the train tickets have to be punched at one of those little orange machines?

And do I have to worry about my debit card not having the "chip?" (There is always something.....)

Thank you again,

Ellen

You mean the orange ones like at the tram stops? Not all are small.

bkcw-bahnbilder.de/PictureGallery/…pix.html

Warnemünde is a DB station. Not sure what type of ticket machines are there now. Below pictures are from elsewhere in Germany. There could be separate DB ticket machines for local pubic transport and long distance trains.

…wordpress.com/2010/12/bahnautomaten.jpg

Or the new combo models where both types of tickets are sold by the same machine

> And do I have to worry about my debit card not having the "chip?"

What kind of debit card?

DB tickets can be paid for by credit (and debit) cards, but it's unpredictable if the machines will accept your card or not.

VVW tickets cannot be paid for by credit (and debit) cards.

Forgot: according to the DB sales point database there should be a DB agency at the Warnemünde station building or very close.

Reiseagentur Warnemünde, Inh. Kerstin Klitzke

Zum Bahnhof 5

Mo-Fr 07:00-13:00 13:45-18:00

Sa 08:00-13:00 13:45-15:00

Su 10:00-13:00 13:45-16:00

You can buy there also VVW tickets.

Everyone -- I am so sorry I spelled Stasi Prison - as Statsi --- I tried to change the spelling but cannot edit.
