Lets travel today to Greifswald, a small Hanseatic city in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. We'll take a tour of the old town, with its many historic buildings and the old city harbour. From Greifswald we can take a short bus ride to Wieck, a pretty fishing village on the Baltic Sea. Here we can also visit the ruins of Eldena Monastery, made famous in the works of Caspar David Friedrich. For fans of his work there is also the Caspar David Friedrich Zentrum in Greifswald to visit.

We'll take the 8:33 train from Hauptbahnhof, leaving platform 7 on the lower level. The journey to Greifswald is 2:45 and we will travel on a Schönes Wochenende ticket. Ticket costs are 42 euros for 5 people, so we will split the total cost of all tickets between everyone.
Tickets for the bus to Wieck are extra.The journey time to here is about 20 minutes and we can possibly buy a group day ticket for the bus for around 10 euro for 5 people.
Let's meet by the ticket machines in the centre of platform 7. Please be there by 8:10 and let me know you have arrived, so I can ensure you are included on the ticket.
Please keep your RSVP's up to date.
* Sunshine not guaranteed. I am being optimistic for the weather, but if it does turn out to be bad, then we will postpone the event for a better day.
Please be aware that the personal safety of you and your guest(s) is your responsibility for the duration of the above mentioned Photography in Berlin meet up event. Thanks!
