Special Warnemünde Travel Tips by Bettina Kraft
Why I like Warnemünde: If you are yearning for a little time on a beach, Warnemuende might fit the ticket. This seaside resort in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern lies on the Baltic Sea, north of Rostock. The 800-year-old town is one of the most important harbors in Germany for cruise line ships. The lighthouse here dates from 1897 and is still in use today. Take the time to climb it for a stunning view of the Baltic. Another famous landmark in Warnemuende is the so-called Teepott (tea pot), an interesting example of East German architecture built in the 1960s. Today it houses a restaurant and a sea voyage exhibition. Of course, the main reason why most people come to this area is the beach. Warnemuende is especially popular because it has the widest beaches on the German Baltic coast. And where there is sand, there is the promise of good seafood. Check out the Alte Strom neighborhood with its array of restaurants, pubs, and traditional fishing vessels. One easy day trip from Warnemuende is to Rostock, which is only 7 miles away. Here, the Stasi (East German Secret Police) Museum and the Rostock Zoo are worth seeing. Also, Wismar is only about 40 miles away. This historic and well-preserved former Hanseatic city was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002.
These Warnemünde travel tips are compiled by Bettina Kraft. Bettina likes to help visitors from all over the world to experience Germany in a different, more personal way, and make it easy for them to do so by providing detailed travel tips and advise.
Verified & Approved - Quality Warnemünde Vacation Rentals you can Trust!
There is unfortunately a lot of scam and fraud on the Internet today and we read sad stories about families who booked a cheap apartment on a rental site only to find out later when they arrived that this apartment did not even exist! Therefore when you see our LLAG quality seal next to an apartment listing that means that we have verified and approved this particular apartment and you can be assured that this is a good choice when booking this one.
Of course, given our large selection of vacation rentals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland we cannot personally inspect every one of them. However, here is what we do to to ensure overall high quality and minimze the risk of fraud:
First, we are very selective and don't accept apartments of poor quality based on submitted description and photos.
We verify the owner's address, require a web site, and a valid phone number. With many of our property owners we talk with them over the phone on a daily basis and we have built up with them a strong business relationship over the years.
If we experience communication issues with a property owner, e.g. they respond too slowly to inquiries or customer requests, we investigate and possibly cancel our business relationship with that owner. Reason is if we are not able to successfully communicate with an owner, how can we expect that it should work out with a potential tenant?
We have a very high customer satisfaction rate (please read our customer testimonials.) However, if a customer reports issues we also immediately investigate. In case of incidents where we believe the quality and overall service of an apartment is no longer up to our standards we also remove that one from our site quickly.
Those quality measures helped us in the past to successfully protect our customers when booking a rental through us. Look for the LLAG quality seal that indicates that we have approved and verified that apartment.
