8 Old Wood Trawlers Docked at Alte Strom in Warnemünde, Germany

These old wooden trawlers docked along the Alte Strom are maintaining Warnemünde’s seagoing tradition which dates back to the late 12th century. In 1323, the town was purchased by Rostock, its neighbor to the south, because it was valued for its access to the Baltic Sea. Now the port has evolved into Germany’s biggest cruise terminal. It welcomes about 200 ships a year. Many passengers take a day trip to Berlin while others stay behind to enjoy visiting the quaint seaside resort of Warnemünde. Its name means “The mouth of the Warnow River.”
