Historical city trips to Rostock

Learn about the history of the city in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania on a night watchman tour. If you are interested in the history of Rostock, you should book a hotel near the old city, such as “Die Kleine Sonne” Hotel. You can still experience the living history of Rostock in the small alleys, along the remains of the city wall and the old churches.

As the name suggests, tours for adults do not take place during the day but during the evening, depending on the time of year. During these historical city tours with the night watchman in his black robe, wide-brimmed hat and halberd, you will discover gruesome, funny and tragic stories from the city’s past. The night watchman will also give you tips on where you can find the city’s best restaurants, cafés and hotels.

Discover Rostock’s maritime side on your city trip

A city like Rostock, which is so tightly connected to the Baltic Sea, leads its visitors to the sea in one way or another, whether on the water or in it. Depending on the time of year, the Baltic Sea is the perfect destination for a family holiday with children. Guests will find countless maritime-themed offerings during their city trip, even outside of the summer season.

The excursion boats run both in Rostock and in Warnemünde all the year round, setting sail on the Warnow out into the open sea. During the course of the harbour tour, you will have a fantastic view over the Hanseatic city or the former fishing village of Warnemünde. Guests can book offers for evening trips and outings to the nature reserves and the historic harbours up to the seaside town of Kühlungsborn.

Our tip: book a hotel with a restaurant for your city trip to Rostock, one that offers local specialities and a selection of fresh fish on the menu. Experience the maritime side of Rostock from a culinary perspective, too.

Numerous events are always available to inspire visitors on their trips. This includes the now well-established “Culture meets Pleasure” event, which takes place every year for a day in November, in hotels and restaurants in Rostock.
