Hanseatic City of Rostock and Warnemünde Seaside Resort

Brick Gothic, white beach and maritime flair

With almost 800 years of history, the Hanseatic city of Rostock is the oldest and largest university and port city in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. With its unique location on the water and the combination of a large city, an attractive seaside resort and the pristine natural area of the Rostock Heath, Rostock is one of the most beautiful vacation spots in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

The cityscape of the Hanseatic city is characterized by the traditional brick Gothic of the Hanseatic era. The city center, the old town, as well as the city harbor invite you to shop, enjoy, stroll and linger.

White sandy beach and rushing Baltic waves, on the other hand, can be found in Warnemünde. Enjoy the view over the unique coastline from the lighthouse. The kilometer-wide beach invites you to sunbathing, beach and water sports activities. In addition to traditional fishing boats on the Alter Strom, you will meet the international cruise ships anchored at the passenger quay in Germany’s largest cruise port.

The Rostock Heath offers a pure nature experience. The unspoiled coastal forest east of Warnemünde with its special and healthy climate offers the best conditions for an adventure hike or bike tour.
