The third port on our Northern European Capitals cruise is a seaside village in northern Germany that is the "jumping off point for Berlin." Berlin is a 2 1/2 hour journey by train or bus from the port of Warnemunde. We have opted to not venture into Berlin but to stay and enjoy the area.
DS14 has had a love for trains that spans his whole life, so choosing the Molli Steam Train excursion was an easy choice for our day. We will begin with a stop at (1) the 14th century Cistercian monastery of Bad Doberan where, after touring the site, we'll board (2) the Molli Steam Train where we'll ride along the German seaside to Heiligendamm which was the site of the 207 G-8 Summit and then continue to Kuhlungsborn before returning to Warnemunde. It has the promises of being a completely leisurely day.
