Depart the pier for Bad Doberan, a former summer residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg and home to a grand example of Gothic red-brick architecture. Enjoy a visit into the Minster, which was built between 1294 and 1368 and used to be a mighty Cistercian convent. It is home to one of Germany’s earliest winged Altars and also exhibits the earliest wood carved Madonna statue in northern Germany dating back to 1290. Transfer to a tiny train station and board the ‘Molli’, a narrow gauge steam train, for a leisurely 15-20 minute journey from Bad Doberan to Heiligendamm, ‘chugging’ at an approximate speed of 35 km per hour.
Pass along Europe’s longest Linden tree lined avenue, also referred to as the ‘green tunnel’. Board your coach for a brief ride to kuehlungsborn, where your guide will take you onto one of the sea bridges which are very popular to these old resorts, before you get the opportunity to stroll through the town center on your own or treat yourself to a short walk along the beach promenade. Board your coach again for a short transfer to your refreshment venue where you’ll enjoy some coffee and traditional German cake.
