Art Deco in Warnemünde

There was quite a lot of Deco style (certainly Moderne style) in Warnemünde. Most of it is of relatively recent construction though.

This was directly across the River Warnow from the ship’s berth. Loads of horizontals and verticals, then there are those semi-circular projections at the entrance:-

Third stop on our Baltic cruise last year was Warnemünde, North Germany. It lies at the mouth of the River Warnow and is effectively the port for Rostock, of which it is administratively part.

We could have taken trips to Rostock – or Berlin – but decided not to. The Berlin one involved a long bus trip would only have allowed a few hours in the city and Rostock wasn’t particularly attractive.

From the dockside on the River Warnow you have to cross an inlet to get to the main part of Warnemünde. Looking north:-

Warnemünde is a nice wee place with quite a lot of modern architecture but in the town centre mostly older type buildings:-
