Transportation from Berlin to Warnemunde

Recommended Posts

We will be going on the Sky Princess and spending a few days in Berlin before the cruise. Has anyone done the trip to the port on their own. I believe there is both a train and a bus. Is one better than the other? Is it easy to do?

We are doing the same thing and going on the same ship!! 

 

We looked at the Princess transfer but it was a bit pricey at $512.00 CDN plus having to get back to the airport to board the bus.  So I did some research and found that taking the train from Berlin to Warnemunde was very doable .  The cost, return, for both of us is about $120.00 CDN.    

 

According to the schedule I found (we aren't booked yet, so times could change) we are planning to leave Berlin at 8:11am and getting into Warnemunde before 11:30am.   

 

I've attached my notes.  I hope this helps.

We have also taken the train from Berlin Hbf to the port. Anubi's attachment offers your options.

Taking the train is very straight forward, relaxing & much more affordable than the expensive cruise transfers. You board your train at Berlin's main station & get off at Rostock. You change to the S Bahn in Rostock and end in Warnemunde. The Warnemunde station is across the street from the cruise terminal.

Note: your departing platform in Berlin will be found on the bottom level (tief - means deep). These are the north-south platforms (1-8). So, when you enter Berlin hbf from the street, you will be on level 0. You take the escalator (or lift) down to level 2 where you will find platforms 1 through 8. We departed from platform 6.

There is a better map of the Berlin station here:

You will depart from 2. Untergeschoss (shown on the station plan) where you see platforms 1 - 8. 

We find the trains in Germany (and, for that matter, most of Europe) a very pleasant experience. They are easy to use and very comfortable. A bonus is always the price versus cruise transfers.

You might also consider the Flix bus.  We took it summer before last from Berlin to Warnemunde.  It was inexpensive, easy, and direct.  The bus left us at the train station, which is an easy walk to the cruiseport.
