Once considered just a quaint fishing village at the mouth of the Warnow River, Warnemunde emerged in the 20th century as Germany's fifth largest maritime centre for all of Germany's shipping, shipbuilding and fishing industries. This port city is also the gateway to the great city of Berlin and its history, culture and attractions.

  12:00am River Elbe, At Sea, Germany

  12:00am Hamburg, Germany
Hamburg is a busy harbour city situated along the Elbe River in North Germany, and owes much of its architecture to the rebuilding done in the late 19th and early 20th centuries after a massive fire. World War II also inflicted severe damage, but the city's medieval character is still evident thanks to post-war restorations. The skyline features an extraordinary backdrop of church spires, architectural landmarks and towers, and the whole of the city serves as a gateway to the neighbouring capital of Berlin.

Once a member of the Hanseatic League, Bremen is home to some incredible Gothic architecture. The Marktplatz (Market Square) in particular is a must-visit site. Here you will find the Town Hall of Bremen, a Gothic structure originally built between 1405 and 1410. This UNESCO World Heritage Site currently hosts a restaurant with original Hanseatic era décor and the Bremer Ratskeller, a public house in the basement. The Town Hall is also home to the 12 oldest wines in the world.
