Depart the pier for Bad Doberan, a former summer residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg and home to a grand example of Gothic red-brick architecture. Enjoy a visit into the Minster, which was built between 1294 and 1368 and used to be a mighty Cistercian convent. It is home to one of Germany's earliest winged Altars and also exhibits the earliest wood carved Madonna statue in northern Germany dating back to 1290. Transfer to a tiny train station and board the 'Molli', a narrow gauge steam train, for a leisurely 15-20 journey from Bad Doberan to Heiligendam, 'chugging' at an approximate speed of 35 km per hour. Pass along Europe's longest linden tree avenue, also referred to as the 'green tunnel'. Board your coach for a brief ride to Juhlungsborn, where your guide will take you onto one of the sea bridges which are very popular to these old resorts, before you get the opportunity to stroll through the town center on your own or treat yourself to a short walk along the beach promenade. Board your coach again for a short transfer to your refreshment venue where you'll enjoy some coffee and traditional German cake. Note: Order of sights may vary. The Molli steam train route may alternate, depending on the day of operation.

WANTED MORE MOLLI TRAIN!
VISIT TO MINSTER WAS INTERESTING BUT FAR TO MUCH TIME WAS SPENT HERE. IT BECAME BORING. THE MOLLI TRAIN FROM BAD DOBERAN TO HEILIGENDAM WAS VERY SCENIC AND ENJOYABLE. TO LITTLE TIME WAS SPENT AT THE OLD SEASIDE RESORT FOR STROLL THROUGH TOWN CENTRE OR BEACH PROMENADE. STOPPED AT A HOTEL FOR COFFEE AND LOVELY GERMAN CAKE WHICH WAS DELICIOUS!.
