Buy your ticket online

Hike along Europe’s top-voted beach, UNESCO heritage forests & Chalky white cliffs that plunge into the emerald waters of the Baltic Sea

Let’s discover Germany’s wild north! We hike along endless stretches of unspoilt white beaches framed by the baltic sea and ghostly forests. We encounter a lonely lighthouse or two. Together we wander through a UNESCO heritage forest sitting on top of dramatic chalk cliffs that plunge into the emerald waters of the Baltic Sea. The cherry on top of our nature adventure is our visit to one of the most Disney-like castles in Germany – Schloss Schwerin and our stay in the charming Hanseatic harbour town of Rostock.

Whether you are a nature enthusiast, a photography lover, or simply seeking a tranquil escape, Baltic Shores is the perfect event for you. So pack your bags, put on your walking shoes, and get ready to be captivated by the beauty of the Baltic coastline.


Jasmund National Park: Famous for containing Germany’s largest chalk cliffs & UNESCO heritage beech forest.

Nienhagen Beach: A natural sandy beach, which is lonely for most of the year , offering peace and relaxation. It also offers a charming natural landscape with the contrast between the natural beach and the adjacent magical coastal forest area (ghost forest) with its rare flora and fauna.

Warnemunde Beach: The sand beach, which is 14 kilometres long and the broadest on the German Baltic coast, scores highly thanks to its size, visual attractions and the vibrancy on the promenade.

Schwerin Castle: Castle surrounded by lakes & forests that just makes it look like something from a fairytale.

Ghost Forest of Nienhagen: The unspoilt ghost forest with its characteristic, crooked trees is something very special. “Where the wind mows the grass” is what the locals say when they speak of this magical place: Because the curved grasses of the forest are constantly exposed to sea winds, they always seem to stay the same length.

Warnemunde Lighthouse: The lighthouse can be seen from almost anywhere in Warnemünde – and from 30 metres up inside the lighthouse you can see almost all of Warnemünde.A giant landmark that has been standing here over 120 years guiding sailors to safety in this the Baltic sea.

Discover Rostock: The Hanseatic City of Rostock. Rostock was the most important member of the “Hanse” (Hanseatic League) and the city gained great wealth in the past. Nowadays fascinates its visitors with impressive monuments: gorgeous gabled houses, great churches with more than 100 meter high towers, enormous cellars, impressive gates and massive dams.


Day 1: We catch a train to the picturesque castle of Schwerin. Schwerin castle sits on an island surrounded by lakes & forests, which all contributes to give it that stunning appearance. We meet our local guide outside the train station and then proceed getting enthralled by his stories about this magical castle town with the tour finishing right by the castle. Post the guided tour, we grab a bite / drink and admire the Castle gardens before heading to Rostock, where we would be staying in for the next 2 nights.

Day 2: Post breakfast, we are off to briefly explore the Hanseatic town of Rostock. We then take a train to the seaside town of Sassnitz to discover Rügen island and hike in UNESCO listed national park Jasmund along stunning white chalk cliffs that reach up to 100 meters while surrounded by beech forests. We hike almost the entire Jasmund National park, finishing back at Sassnitz and grabbing a bite / drink before heading back to Rostock.

Day 3: Post breakfast & checkout, we take a mix of train & bus to get to the beautiful seaside resort town of Nienhagen (hike starting point), where we would be hiking between Nienhagen beach & Warnemunde beach, one of Germany’s most beautiful beaches. We’ll say hello to an iconic lighthouse and walk 500m into the Baltic sea on a pier in Warnemunde where we grab a bite / drink before heading back to Rostock and then back home.
