Gothenburg – Sweden
Gothenburg, a major city in Sweden, is situated off the Göta älv river on the country’s west coast. An important seaport, it’s known for its Dutch-style canals and leafy boulevards like the Avenyn, the city’s main thoroughfare, lined with many cafes and shops.
Warnemünde – Germany
Warnemünde is a German port town on the Baltic Sea, near Rostock. It’s known for its long beachfront and marina. Nearby, the Alter Strom canal is lined with shops and fishing boats. The Edvard Munch Haus, former home of the renowned expressionist painter, runs exhibitions and events. The late-19th-century lighthouse and neighboring Teepott building display distinctive East German architecture.
Rønne, Bornholm – Denmark
Nestled nearer to Sweden than Denmark, Bornholm has been under Danish rule since 1522. Once an important Baltic trading port, today the island is known for its scenic beauty and historic Old Town. Be sure to enjoy a leisurely stroll in the Gamle Stan (Old Town) with its cobbled streets and yellow and orange cross-timbered houses.
Visby, Gotland – Sweden
Beautiful Visby is a stunning sight as you sail into Gotland, its Cathedral, stone building rooftops and the old city wall are the ports stunning backdrop. Just a short walk from the ship, you can follow the old city wall round to the original entrance into the city, dating back to the 12th Century, much of the original town has survived, and wandering its UNESCO World Heritage streets is the perfect way to spend your day on shore.
Klaipėda – Lithuania
As Lithuania’s oldest city, Klaipeda dates back to the 7th century and there is history crammed into every nook and cranny of the city. Much of the historic centre does not exist anymore, although the Prussian influences are still clearly visible throughout the city especially in the town square and adjoining streets.
