Your journey begins with a relaxed coach transfer from the port in Warnemünde to the city of Rostock.
Upon arrival in the center of this Hanseatic flagship city, begin a walking tour that will lead you to University Square with its playful fountain. Founded in 1419, the beautiful brick-red building is the oldest university in the Baltic. Stroll through the consecrated gardens of the Holy Cross Convent and at New Market, view the oldest building that houses the town's library.
Don't miss the awe-inspiring St Mary's Church. The astronomical clock is its major attraction and your guide will be happy to tell you of its provenance and its astonishing lifespan.
Hop back on the motor coach for a short transfer to a local microbrewery in Rostock. Raise a glass of beer and devour a freshly baked pretzel.
After this authentic and delicious local snack, board your coach for a short transfer to the town jetty, followed by a smooth cruise on a public sightseeing boat for the trip back to the pier in Warnemünde. During your approximately 45 minutes on the water, you will see the harborside of this Hanseatic city. Watch for sailing ships and pretty garden areas.
