A scenic coach ride brings you to the idyllic town of Kuehlungsborn -- a seaside resort with a distinctive vacation atmosphere.
Here you will board the 'Molli' -- a historic narrow-gauge steam train that has connected Bad Doberan and Kuehlungsborn since 1886, and is still in use today.
Puffing along at approximately 22 miles per hour, you will see Europe's longest avenue of linden trees, known as the 'green tunnel'.
You're headed to Heiligendamm (Germany's first seaside resort), where the G8 summit took place in 2007.Re-board your coach and visit Bad Doberan, the former summer residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg, packed with grand examples of Gothic redbrick architecture. Bad Doberan's cathedral is distinguished by its rural setting, rare among medieval churches, towering above the surrounding meadows and trees unencumbered by narrow urban streets. Unlike most town churches, it lacks the scale for comparison that neighboring houses usually afford. Built between 1294 and 1368, this awesome Gothic church makes Bad Doberan a popular destination for visitors.
