Photo Wandering - Springtime and Sunshine* at Greifswald and the Baltic Sea

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!

    Great! the sun seems to be for sure in Greifswald on Saturday. See you on Hauptbahnhof early in the morning. I'm happy to be in the group. See you ;-)

    Hi everyone
    it looks like we should be lucky with the sunshine for Saturday :). So, just a few notes about the trip below, but can I please ask that you keep your RSVP's up to date, if anyone cannot now join us please do update your RSVP here.

    Can I first of all ask that you try to get to Hauptbahnhof for 8:10, because of the large numbers attending this trip it will take longer to sort out all the tickets. I will purchase all tickets and then get the contribution required from you afterwards. It is important that you let me know you have arrived - anyone who does not, then I can not guarantee I have purchased a ticket for you. We meet by the ticket machine at the center of platform 7. If for any reason this machine is broken then I will try the machines at the end of the platform.

      If possible with the connection, then I would suggest we go straight from the train station by bus to the fishing village. Here we can get drinks, food and take lots of photos. From there it is just a short walk to the ruined Eldena monastery, where there is also a small beach close by. Afterwards we can take the bus back from the monastery into Greifswald.

      We will aim to return on the 18:43 train, arriving back in Berlin at 21:29. If anyone does get seperated from the group or chooses to sightsee alone, then please be at the station in time for this train.

      My mobile number is[masked], so please, if anyone is lost at the station or at any time during the day just give me a call.

      Looking forward to seeing you all Saturday!

    Sorry, I'd like to partecipate at this trip on saturday with two friends of mine. I know that RSVP is closed (I red it late). I ask you, Beth and Julie, if it's possible to admit us. Thank you

    April 18, 2013

    • Julie W.

      I'm really sorry Fabio but because of the already high numbers signed up for this trip I am not taking any more RSVP's. But, do keep a watch here, numbers sometimes do drop close to the date of a trip, if this happens I will review it and offer you places. Also I have future similar trips that I hope you can join us on!

    It sounds like a really nice idea, do you have an idea of when we will be returning to Berlin on Saturday?

    April 8, 2013

    • Julie W.

      There is a train departing Greifswald at 18:43, arriving Berlin Hbf at 21:29, this may be the best option.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
