Rostock & Warnemünde - So gegensätzlich und doch im Einklang

Rostock & Warnemünde belong together like Luv and Lee. Historic Hanseatic city and lively seaside resort are happily united here. Let yourself be enchanted by the charming old town with its omnipresent history, the brick churches and their small alleys. Stroll through the city centre with the pink town hall, the colourful gables of the merchants' houses and the oldest university in Northern Europe.

In Warnemünde you can satisfy your longing for the sea. The kilometre-long sandy beach   invites you to take long walks, refreshments in the Baltic Sea or simply to go idle. Take a look into the windows of the lovingly maintained and sometimes crooked captain's houses during a ramble through the former fishing village. You will succumb to the charm of Rostock & Warnemünde!

Under full sails

The maritime heritage lives in Rostock & Warnemünde. Follow the wake-up call of the seagulls and observe the hustle and bustle of the fishermen's village on the Alter Strom. Not far away, the masts of the numerous sailing boats rock in the natural rhythm of the waves. Here, where the clocks depend on the sea and the wind, you feel the exhilarating feeling of freedom of the water. Enthusiastic kitesurfers glide across the Baltic Sea at breathtaking speed and perform daring tricks in the air. The sailing elite meets every year in July for the Warnemünde Week and holds exciting competitions, while a colourful offer awaits you on land. Don't miss the Hanse Sail, which invites you to an international meeting of tall ships and traditional sailors on the second weekend in August. Experience the legendary seafaring romance on a trip!

Cruise port with a charming flair

Where large cruise ships are anchored next to idyllic captain's houses and old fishing cutters, cruise guests and "ship watchers" experience a very special atmosphere. Watch the hustle and bustle on the water from the passenger quay in Warnemünde or a little calmer from the shore in Hohe Düne. From April to October there is an impressive picture when sailing boats, passenger ships and ferries sail past the majestic sea giants onto the Baltic Sea. During the cruise season, the legendary port parties take place on selected multiple calls. During this exciting spectacle, the ships are accompanied out to sea with shanties, tug ballet and high-altitude fireworks. Let yourself be carried away by the longing for adventure and the wide world when the ship disappears on the horizon at sunset.

Vacation for body & soul - out of the daily grind, into relaxation

Away from the big city you will find many possibilities to escape from everyday life. Explore the unspoilt coastal forest of the Rostocker Heide by bike or on foot. Stop and breathe in the mild stimulating climate of the Baltic Sea, whose soothing effect promotes physical well-being. Or experience the Baltic Sea in a wide variety of water sports. Although it is less quiet, it can be just as liberating and relaxing. Somewhat inland, the Warnow invites you to a scenic and varied water hike by kayak or canoe. If you are looking for complete relaxation, spoil yourself with your own personal wellness programme at one of the certified wellness and health providers. Whether active in nature or pampering program - here you will find your relaxation!

Family holiday at the Baltic Sea

Where pirates conquer the Baltic Sea, amused water rats romp in the waves, little explorers discover nature and young animal keepers observe wild animals, the whole family experiences an exciting holiday time. As a family-friendly certified holiday resort, Warnemünde offers many unforgettable experiences, especially for the little guests. In addition, the beaches of Warnemünde and Markgrafenheide  are ideal for initial swimming exercises due to the predominantly shallow water.
