The Cottages of Warnemunde, Germany

Leaving “the Teepott,” we are headed to the main shopping area of Warnemunde, but my thoughts are on the little fisherman’s cottages that are everywhere! You can see how wide the street is here. I didn’t see one car, so I think the village is pedestrian only. Or, maybe there are no cars because it is very early in the day.

The pirate looks like he might have had a rough night though!

Let’s look and see what the latest furniture trend is, in one of the first furniture shops I have seen since we left home……..

Maybe we should pop in here and get a local brew!

The streets are getting more narrow……..let’s keep on walking……….we’ll get there………

Here we go……our first look in the neighborhood………..

and another………

with a rose that matches the door trim…….. notice all these cottages had front doors………

Then we get the doors to what? Cottage 56 had a side door and a wall door……very appropriate artwork for a sea side cottage………

There is nothing left ugly in the village……whatever that is, decorate it! NO GRAFITTI……….

In front of the newer cottages was this fountain……..It represents keeping with German traditions……..don’t forget your roots, so to speak………more to come on that too.

Never throw anything away……I’m not sure what this piece did in it’s former life, but painted that blue-green and adding a chalkboard sign, it is now advertisement for a boarding house. Notice the pear? There are pears on  everything, if you look. It must mean something. I didn’t notice it though until I got home and looked at my photos. I love this street scene……….

Finally, there was too much space between cottages for a door! But, there is this lovely little walkway between the cottages. This one is open and wider, so we can finally see………It’s a walkway between streets, so you don’t have to walk all the way to the end of the street to get over to the next street. It’s a short cut.  Most of these little walkways, between the cottages, don’t go over to another street, as you will see.

Here was a door between cottages, a way to another pension with a café………AND there are the pears again…..

Look how cute this walkway between cottages is! Is that a naked gal behind the hollyhocks? I find all the nakeds! I feel its an added bonus art gallery!

#24 was one of my favorite cottages with a front door……….I think the cobblestone step adds to the charm………

Warnemunde, Germany

Ah, here we have “the door,” between the cottages……..

Here’s a good look at the different architecture….. the white with blue cottage has gone all modern on us! Probably, was too damaged to be repaired. Or maybe not. I prefer the others……

Warnemunde, Germany

This one is a beauty……..

Warnemunde, Germany

and so is this one…….

Warnemunde, Germany

And the folks at #15 wanted something different for their door……………….

Warnemunde, Germany

Hollyhocks were everywhere in the cottage gardens!

Warnemunde, Germany

and right in the middle of the cottage neighborhood was a little restaurant….we’ll stop here for another break…..Tomorrow we’re going to the local history museum……What will we see there?

PS, I never did find out anything about the pears, but I did find out a little something, that may explain the naked bodies here. Warnemunde Beach is a Nude Beach, optional of course….no wonder the guide didn’t take us any closer to the beach than he did!  The other bit of info I have for you is all signs around the village are written in German only. Even the menus that I saw were German only. I kinda liked that actually! See you tomorrow!

    Ah, those fishermen’s cottages! I’d call them story book cottages, especially with the fanciful window and door architectural designs and hollyhocks. My favorite is the first one you featured, the one with a deep sea blue door and window trim and woodwork.

    The early morning “empty” streets remind me of the early mornings Hubby and the children and I strolled Seattle’s Pike Place Market before anything opened. No crowds hindered our wanderings or views. We used to “escape” Yakima during August and drive over the Cascade mountains to Seattle, often for only one day. Many day trips, in fact. I miss those days.

    1. Jo, aren’t you glad we have got to see and do so many things? I don’t think it will ever be the same for our great-grandchildren! They will be missing a lot of good times and simple fun!
