Vitte Hiddensee Mecklenberg-Western Pomerania Germany Europe

28/05/2023 Vitte to Stralsund to Lauterbach

Vitte Harbour, Hiddensee Island

Vitte is the largest of the four villages on the small, peaceful traffic-free island of Hiddensee in the Baltic Sea. The island provides protected habitat for many bird species and opportunities for visitors to enjoy hiking, biking and horseriding. Here, fishing boats once unloaded their catch and the ferries now unload visitors. Stroll through the village or perhaps join an optional horse-drawn carriage ride around the island.

Later this morning, your ship cruises towards Stralsund, a lively maritime city with a vibrant waterfront. You can join an optional city walk which reveals an old nunnery, the cathedral and market square, or perhaps visit the Ozeanum – part aquarium, part marine biology museum.

Depart Stralsund early this evening and cruise to Lauterbach on the island of Rügen, mooring for the night.

In addition to its 37 miles of fine, sandy beaches, Rügen has a lot to offer, from large national parks to sleepy fishing villages and elegant manor houses.

A Gothic church from the 15th century still contains its original altar and a 17th-century pulpit, while the 18th-century Christ the King church in the town centre holds a wooden replica of a ship in its nave. The town also has a museum dedicated to local deep sea fishing.

Swinemunde Poland Europe

31/05/2023 Swinemünde to Szczecin


Arrive mid morning in Szczecin, following an early departure from Swinemünde.

Originally the German city of Stettin, the town of Szczecin was effectively the 'port of Berlin' and so suffered heavy Allied bombing during World War Two. Now a Polish city, Szczecin has been rebuilt to recapture some of its original style and appeal, with wide tree-lined avenues and parks, based partly on Haussmann’s 19th-century rebuilding of Paris.

Look out for the decorative Ducal Castle, the Cathedral Basilica of St Jacob the Apostle and the terraces of Waly Chrobrego, providing viewpoints alongside the River Oder.

Enjoy an included tour of Szczecin this afternoon.

Your ship remains moored here overnight.

Disembark your ship after breakfast and look forward to an included tour of Berlin, which has one of the most fascinating histories in Europe.

Originally a small port on the River Spree, it had developed into the capital of the German Empire by 1871, and the growth of its influence as a cultural centre increased greatly up until its division into Soviet-controlled communist East Germany and capitalist West Germany.

The Berlin Wall was erected to stop East Germans escaping to the West for a better standard of living. With the fall of the wall in 1989, the city was reunified and slowly began to regain some of its former glory, although parts of the wall remain as a reminder of the Soviet era.

Stay overnight at a locally rated 4-star hotel in Berlin with breakfast and dinner included.
