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 want, 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 world's oldest university and an impressive place to start. Hit up the city zoo or head out to the 19th century Warnemunde lighthouse, still in operation with an observation platform that gives you the best views of the Baltic Sea and nearby Rostock region.
You can also take a walk along the Strand, a lively part of the harbor where young people can be found playing the ancient game of Kubb, a lawn game with wooden blocks. Try your hand at a round or two and be sure to sample some delicious local food while in town.
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.
