Rostock

4.3

Hanseatic City

Rostock was once one of the primary ports of the powerful Hanseatic League. Now decades past war and communist rule, it has emerged as a pleasant seaside city with a distinctly modern feel. Its economic importance brought about its annihilation during World War II, but Rostock has been lovingly restored. Many of its Baltic-style buildings appear untouched since the 14th and 15th centuries. The students at one of the world's oldest universities bring a vibrant, youthful energy to the town. You'll have no trouble finding traditional German beer houses, trendy cafes, and upscale restaurants mixed in with pleasant green spaces and winding side streets. When using our Germany road trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
