Rostock On Your Own

No crowded bus tours or limiting itineraries for you! With this 4.5-hour tour you can see as much or as little of Rostock as you wish, on your own terms.

The excitement begins as your local escort accompanies you to the train station, organizes your travel ticket and takes you to Rostock. Upon arrival at the Central Train Station, your escort will make sure you get on the right city tram and lead you into downtown. He or she will provide you with maps, a general orientation and suggestions on where to go and what to see. Then you're off to experience Rostock on your own! Make like a local and use the S-Bahn and tramway to get around as you visit the city highlights.

Rostock University, founded in 1419, is the oldest and largest university in continental Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea area and an impressive place to start. Hit up the city zoo or visit beautiful St.Mary's church with it's astronomical clock from 1472. The only one worldwide that is still in working condition with it's original clockwork!

You can also take a walk along the city port, a lively part of the harbor where you could visit Rostock's very own chocolatier. Try a traditional fish roll or sit for a cup of coffee in one of the many restaurants. Or simply stroll through Rostock's lovely main shopping street lined with lots of medieval merchant houses and a market square worth lots of photo shots.

This tour is a must-do for independent guests who like to explore an area at their own pace. Sign up and get ready to "do as the Rostockers do" in this remarkable city.
