Those who don't want to go far (to Berlin) are welcome to explore what port proximity has to offer: Rostock & Warnemuende, two charming hanseatic towns with stunning architecture, interesting history and lots of photo opportunities!
Warnemünde is a Baltic seaside resort and a district of the city of Rostock. Founded in about 1200, Warnemünde was for centuries a small fishing village. Being a center of maritime traffic, the district of Warnemünde comprises numerous navigational aids, the oldest being the lighthouse, built-in 1897, and still currently in use. In the summer, the tower, approximately 37 meters (121 ft) high, allows visitors to enjoy an impressive view over the Baltic Sea and the northern districts of Rostock.
Warnemünde Olg Stream canal or Alte Strom is a beautiful bay with the draw bridge, full of the fishermen's boats, restaurants, and pubs. The surrounding streets are full of small colorful houses. The main attraction of the area is the fish market with the fresh Baltic sea catch.
St. Mary's Church or Marienkirche, on Ziegenmarkt, is an imposing 13th century Brick Gothic church. Inside there is a unique astronomical clock built in 1472 by Hans Düringer.
The remains of the old City Wall can be found in different areas of Rostok's old town. The traditional medieval fortification structure used to protect the rich Hanseatic city from the invasions.
Kröpeliner Straße is Rostok's main pedestrian street that begins at the historic Market square and runs east to the 14th-century Kröpeliner Tor, a former town gate. All Rostok's essential buildings can be found around this street, including the University and Town Hall. The structures of the street are colorful and feature different styles, like baroque, gothic, neo-classical, and others. The funny fountain called Zest for life (Brunnen der Lebensfreude) can be found in the middle of the street, in front of the University building.
Kröpeliner Tor is located in the east end of Kröpeliner Straße. It's one of the oldest remaining gates of Germany, dating to 1270. The observation spot on the top offers the magnificent panorama of the city center.
One of the most picturesque places in Rostock is the New Market Square, with the Town Hall. The square has preserved six original, carefully restored gable houses from the 15th and 16th centuries. The other historical homes in Hanseatic style that once bordered the square were destroyed in an Allied air-raid in 1942, and rebuilt in a simplified manner
Rostok town hall was originally built in the 13th century in Brick Gothic style but extensively transformed in the 18th century, with the addition of a Baroque façade and a banqueting hall. It's one of the town's main attractions, reminding of the town's "golden" Hanseatic age.
Founded in 1419, it is the third-oldest university in Germany. It is the oldest and largest university in continental northern Europe and the Baltic Sea area and 8th oldest in Central Europe. Throughout the 15th century, the University of Rostock had about 400 to 500 students each year, a large number at that time. Rostock was among the largest universities in Germany at the time, and many of its students also came from the Low Countries, Scandinavia, or other states bordering the Baltic Sea. Currently, with ten faculties and students from 99 different countries, Rostok University is a famous school that raised numerous Nobel prize winners.
