Rostock: maritime charm and Hanseatic history
Rostock still has a slight air of elegance – with stately buildings, a relaxed, maritime charm, and an arts and culture program at unusual venues.
Rostock captivates visitors with a laid-back, maritime attitude surrounded by ubiquitous Brick Gothic architecture. Stroll from the Steigenberger Hotel Sonne through the magnificent historic district. You will pass by sights such as the Kröpelin Gate, the Courthouse, the Town Hall and the Abbey of the Holy Cross. A large portion of the city wall is even still intact. Rostock is also home to a modern port that you can tour. The city has a surprisingly rich, diverse cultural scene. This includes numerous museums as well as out-of-the-ordinary performance venues. For example, you can attend plays and concerts inside a former convent or shipbuilding dock hall.
