Today is a slice of Germany’s inventive past. You’ll begin with a panoramic drive through Warnemunde, an 800-year-old fishing town that’s famous for its clean air and golden-sand beaches. From here you’ll move on to nearby Rostock, and visit New Market Square and the Town Hall, which shows off North-German Gothic architecture dating back to the 13th century. You’ll also see St Mary’s Church, and its striking 550-year-old astronomical clock – the oldest of its kind that still works. After, you’ll visit Warnemunde Beach, and be talked through the history of beach baskets, which were invented by the Germans in 1882. Here, you can sample traditional German beer and bratwursts.
