Germany 8: Warnemunde and Rostock

Germany  8: Warnemunde and Rostock

This program takes us to two Baltic locations in Germany, Warnemunde and Rostock. Warnemunde is part Baltic beach resort, and part old fishing village. Here we see the Warnemunde Lighthouse, which stands 115 feet tall and is over 100 years old; also Warnemunde Beach, which used to be called "the bathtub of Berliners." Rostock is a Hanseatic town founded in the 12th century. Here we see the Rostock Town Hall, which dates back to the 1300s; Rostock University, which was founded in 1419; and St. Mary's Church, which was built in the 13th century. This church is the most important sacred structure in Rostock, having miraculously survived WW I and WW II without any damage. It too is home to a fascinating Astronomical clock; built in 1472, it is the oldest of its kind in the world. Also in the church is a magnificent Baroque organ. Lastly, we board the area's most popular attraction, a narrow-gauge steam train named Molly. Put into regular service in 1886, this steam train is a wonderful way to travel back in time. 02/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
