Indian Summer at the Baltic Sea

Romantique Baltic Sea Warnemuende

For the bank holiday, Mr Romantique and I packed our bags, flew to Berlin and rented a car to race down the Autobahn to Warnemünde also dubbed the “Berlin bathtub” due to its proximity to Berlin (212 km).

Most people, including Mr Romantique, don’t even know that Germany has not only one but two oceans, the North sea and the Baltic sea. I prefer the Baltic sea beaches, with their 1900 km of sugary white sand, picturesque Unesco World heritage towns, national parks and endless lakes. As children, Rebel and I would often go to the Baltic sea with our parents and spend long summer days on the coast.

Characteristic of the teutonic  beaches are the unique wicker beach chairs,  scattered along the wide stretches of white sand. Their blue, yellow, red or green striped design exudes maritime flair whilst they keep you sheltered from the wind and sun. You can rent these comfy wicker chairs daily or hourly.

Warnemünde is great for relaxing on its wide beaches or strolling along it’s busy dock,  watching the cruise ships and ferries pass by. There are plenty of restaurants offering local sea fare. If you don’t feel like a sit down meal grab a fresh matjes (soused herring) sandwich from one of the many Backfisch stands for a delectable selection of local seafood specialities.

Warnemünde has a textile beach as well as a natural beach. In Germany, this is a question of culture. While most “Ossies” (Eastern Germans) like getting naked, the more prudish West Germans prefer the bikini beaches.

I’m wearing:

  • Blue Vichy Gingham dress by Pinko – clashing picnic checks and the maritime stripes of the beach whicker baskets
  • Sicilian straw coffa bag by Sicily Bag
  • Gelato pink sunglasses by Celine
  • Sandals by AGL, Attilio Giusti Leombruni
