If you see a bakery with a queue out of the door – morning and afternoon – you know it’s going to be good. Gottschalk’s Bakery is recommended for the baked goods and the coffee and also for the bustle of a busy shop, untainted by musical wallpaper when we were there last summer. There’s a small indoor cafe beyond the bakery counter, with more tables outside. Graal-Müritz is a seaside resort with a sandy beach on the fringes of the North Sea port of Rostock.
