I will be cruising with a stop in Warnemunde. I would like to visit the home of my Grandfather in Gielow, Germany. Can I take a train to a close town and then a taxi? Do you have other suggestions. My husband does not want to drive.
The better connections take two hours one-way and require two changes (2 trains, 1 bus). Other connections can take up to 3 1/2 hours one-way. If you look at Gielow on Google Maps or Earth it's tiny. I can understand why you'd want to go there but it's almost a full-day trip just to get to see a village consisting of about 20 houses... A drive would be just over an hour one-way. Maybe you can negotiate a flat-fee with a taxi driver in the port.
I thought I could take a train from Rostock to Waren
& then take a cab. Not so?
Any suggestions for contact of a taxi with whom I could get a fixed rate to drive me to Gielow?
Nancy, cruise critic port reports says "Both cruise terminals have dial-up rent-a-car facilities. Taxis wait outside when a large ship is in port which happens during most summer days." You might consider http://www.toursbylocals.com/Rostock-Tours where you can book your own private tour, so you won;t miss the ship. At least you will have an idea of the going rate. I don;t see anything on google that would help.
I'm going to Schwerin Castle on my stop in Warnemunde in June.
Hi, Schloss Schwerin is well worth a visit, used to be Mecklenburg-Schwerin.
I found this taxi company (or probably a smart individual rather):
Thanks. I found the same website. I have written, but have not had a reply yet.
If you haven't heard from them/him by mid-week send me a private message and I'll call him and make him aware of your E-Mail.
I did hear from Taxi-Harry, but haven't heard from him again after I answered his question:" a maximum number of hours they want to be on the road? When do you want?" I wrote up an answer and had it translated by Babelfish and sent it a couple of days ago. I am now awaiting second response.
