The source of the Warnow is in Grebbin, a small village 10 km north of Parchim, at the western end of the Mecklenburg Lake District. It flows north through Sternberg, Bützow and Schwaan before reaching Rostock.
In 2003, Germany's first modern toll road, the Warnow Tunnel was opened, connecting the port of Rostock on the east bank with the west bank of the river.
The Warnabi, a medieval Slavic tribe, probably derived their name from the Warnow.
