The Hanseatic City of Rostock can boast a history dating back an impressive 800 years. With a population of 200,000, it is also the biggest city in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania. During the Hanseatic League era, Rostock – then bigger than Hamburg – was one of the most important members of the association and became a very important trading place. In terms of goods handled, the port is now in fourth place among the German sea ports after Hamburg, Bremen and Wilhelmshaven and is an important starting point for ferry services to Scandinavia, Russia, Poland and Latvia.
Rostock has many historical places of interest to offer: the monumental St. Mary’s Church with its valuable art treasures, the Convent of the Holy Cross near the university or the rebuilt 117-metre-high tower of St. Peter’s Church. Other noteworthy sights include the four remaining city gateways: Kröpeliner Tor, Steintor, the Town Hall and St. Nicholas’ Church. Kröpeliner Straße is very popular among the locals for shopping and taking a stroll.
The geographical location of the city adds to its appeal. One particular aspect is the most beautiful district of Rostock – the seaside resort of Warnemünde with the ’Alter Strom’ canal and the ’Westmole’ pier. One of the attractions for visitors from all over the world is the beach promenade with the lighthouse. A visit to the casino in Warnemünde is also worthwhile. Warnemünde Week, the biggest sailing event in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, offers fun, games, sport, concerts and a varied programme for the whole family. Highlights include the shanty gathering, the Neptune baptism ritual, the dragon boat race and the Warnemünde folk costume gathering.
