In Warnemunde, you will step back in time and depart on a short coach transfer to board an authentic vintage tram for a delightful 25-minute journey into Rostock's city center, once the bustling hub of its transportation system.

Embark on a captivating, guided walk through Mecklenburg Vorpommern’s largest city. Begin at the prestigious University of Rostock, founded in 1419 and renowned for its striking Italian Renaissance architecture. Wander through the charming Kroepeliner Strasse and Am Neuen Markt, vibrant streets brimming with post-reunification energy and historic charm, despite extensive World War II destruction. Marvel at the iconic pink Town Hall, showcasing a Gothic facade adorned with seven turrets and an 18th-century Baroque addition.

Nearby, discover the grandeur of St. Mary’s Church, a masterpiece of red brick Gothic architecture dating back to 1398. Inside St. Mary’s Church, immerse yourself in its rich cultural heritage with an exclusive visit to the tower, where the fascinating 1472 Astronomical Clock awaits. Gain insights into its intricate mechanism and historical significance.

Afterward, enjoy leisure time for personal exploration or shopping before indulging in a taste of the local Schnapps at a traditional pub. Conclude your enriching day with a leisurely walk to the riverside jetty, where you’ll embark on a scenic Warnow River cruise back to Warnemuende. Savor refreshments onboard, choosing from a local German beer or a sparkling "Champagne" to complement your journey through Rostock’s storied past and vibrant present.
