The Warnemünde Cruise Center is located next to the train station -
From the platform you can just see the cruise terminal:
But let us get first a general overview:
Most of you will arrive Terminal 1 = P7 -
very few of you also Terminal 2 = P8 which means 5 minutes more to walk over the parking to get to P7 = Terminal 1:

And you need to cross additionally this parking lot before you arrive at P7 = Terminal 1:
Between Terminal 1 and 2 there is the taxi stand where you can get taxi-tours:
Some of you coming with small ships are arriving on P1-4 which is just there where I took the pictures from a crane.
And one ship need to berth in 2009 in Rostock Seaport instead of Warnemünde:
CRYSTAL SYMPHONY on August 3, 2009
All information on transportation from Warnemünde are not applicable for you as you will be in a total different part of the city of Rostock.
Subject you use the boat between Rostock and Warnemünde you can get here an impression of the distances from the waterside...
And that's the impression from your ship if you are on an open deck facing the open sea:
That's Terminal 1 and subject you find the new signpost:
you can follow them to the train-station
"S" is the commuter train to the City of Rostock
"City" just means the center of Warnemünde...
whatever you prefer...
OR you turn to the right before you have found the signpost...
Next to the terminal you find "Pier 7"-Building - you find here food, souvenirs, Hertz car rental and some information for tourists (it's not the official tourist information of the City of Rostock!!!):
If you are planning to stay in Rostock and want to visit local Rostock sights you can also get the Rostock Card for 10 EUR (2009) which included admission fees and public transport:
At the ferry station to the other bank of the river Warnow and this sign for Jodelling Sausages (no idea if it is good or still exists... never tried a jodelling sausage and will never do!) you turn to the right alongside of the promenade.
Keep left to find this tunnel.
After the tunnel (no way for mobility reduced) you'll get here to the station building.
Check on this board from which track your next commuter train (S-Bahn) to Rostock is leaving:
If you need cash you need to walk straight ahead and cross the bridge and turn right until you see this sign (EC/blue sign):
It's on the left bank of the canal - just in front of the brown hut on the left:
Now let's get to the station if you have enough cash...
Turn to the right for ticket counter (but you will have a tutorial to buy tickets at the machine as some are cheaper there!!!), toilets (50 Cent required), Boattours and Bike and Car Rental.
On the left part you find the Maritimer Sanddornmarkt (former name: Holiday und mehr) - which is a maritime sea buckthorn market...
... reminds to much being sick... taste horrible... but should be very healthy as most Vitamine C concentration in nature without acid...
Go and see your self...
But you see: you can also have cars:
As they have put so many maps on the glass door they need the "Offen" and "Geöffnet"-signs to tell poeple that they are open...
To the right the travel agency and ticket counter for trains and to the left boat- and fishing tours:
That's the current opening hours to of the ticket counter. You can also buy small snacks there:
So it could be too late for some cruisers arriving early at weekends... so you better learn how to use the machines...
For those who like to go fishing... and they offer charter tours with fishing boats - or boat trips incl. smoked fish servings (= Kutterfahrten) and of course if you have your fishing equipements with you: fishing tours (= Dorschangeln = Cod fishing).
It's only in German. If someone need further information: you can send me an e-mail and I will to find it out for you.
UPDATE: August 2009:
Both machines have been replaced by a newer generation which accept cash and credit cards (vary to destination).
