Visit Rostock and St. Mary's Church by train
A visit to Rostock won't disappoint. The combination of historical town and seaside resort means that there is something here for everyone.
Enjoy the Baltic Sea in scenic Warnemünde
The regiopolis of Rostock, in Northern Germany, is located on the Baltic Sea and is therefore an excellent destination for city trippers and beach lovers alike. The seaside part of the city is called Warnemünde, where tourists can soak up the maritime atmosphere of a lighthouse, colourful old houses, the old fisherman port and, of course, a large beach. A visit to the University of Rostock, with its beautiful buildings and botanical garden, should also be on top of everyone's list. The university was founded in 1419 and is one of the oldest in Germany. Its main buildings are located near the pedestrian shopping area Kröpeliner Straße.
Stunning historical buildings in Rostock
The shopping street will take you to the New Market Square, which is one of the most picturesque areas of Rostock. The Town Hall dates back to the 13th century. Behind this stunning building you will find one of the best-preserved brick houses in Gothic style in Rostock, namely the 15th-century Kerkhofhaus. The other end of the Kröpeliner Straße ends at a town gate from the 14th century. This is one of four medieval gates that can still be seen today, as well as parts of the old city wall. There are direct rail connections from Hamburg and Berlin, so it is easy to get to and from Rostock with Deutsche Bahn!Book now
