Your journey begins with a short walk to the jetty, where you will step aboard a sightseeing boat. Enjoy your cruise from the commercial port of Rostock to the city port right downtown. During the 45-minute cruise you will see the romantic side of this Hanseatic city, passing sailing ships and garden areas.
Arriving in the city center, begin your walking tour, which will lead you to the Rostock University Square with its playful fountain. Founded in 1419, the beautiful brick-red building here is home to the oldest university in the Baltic.
Enjoy a walk through the consecrated gardens of the Holy Cross Convent before making your way to the New Market. View the oldest building that houses the town's library and step inside awe-inspiring St Mary's Church. The astronomical clock of St Mary's is its major attraction.
Next, board a motorcoach for a short transfer to visit a local microbrewery in Rostock. Savor a glass of beer along with a freshly-baked pretzel.
After your delightful snack, you will re-board the coach for the drive back to the pier in Rostock.
