This tour covers the top ten sights of the Hanseatic city of Rostock and is the best way to ensure you do not miss the highlights during your visit. Begin with an approximate 30 minute ride into the heart of the city, followed by a panoramic tour of the city by coach before you disembark and cover most of the sights on foot. Step back in time on a city walk through Rostock, Mecklenburg Vorpommern’s largest city, passing by the University of Rostock, the oldest and largest university in continental northern Europe, a city gate which survived the ravages of time, the ‘New Market’ Square lined with six original carefully preserved, gable houses from the 15th and 16th centuries, the Town Hall and St. Mary’s Church, an imposing brick Gothic church built in the 13th century.
See the convent of the Holy Cross and the adjacent medieval city wall. View the modern functional buildings (concrete slab structures) built during the 1960s and in contrast the little fishing village Warnemunde, acquired by Rostock’s town council in 1323, before returning back to your ship. This tour is a compilation of the best sightseeing attractions Rostock has to offer!
