Neuer Markt Rostock

Each of Rostock's three former sub-towns had a market square with a town hall and a nearby church. The Neuer Markt, which is almost square and through which many streets, including Kröpeliner Straße, flow, is one of them. It rapidly grew to become the city's economic hub. The south side of the Neuer Markt was demolished in 1942 during the chaos of World War II. Just a few houses on the north and east sides, including the town hall, were spared. On the west side, a greater ensemble of buildings has been preserved.

Rostock Nature

Rostock Nature Naturschutzgebiet Stoltera
Naturschutzgebiet Stoltera

The approximately 83-hectare Stoltera nature reserve, located directly adjacent to the Warnemünde seaside resort, faces west. It stretches for around 3 kilometres along the Baltic Sea coast. The coastal forest comes to a halt immediately on the Baltic Sea's cliff. Storms have influenced and changed the fascinating and varied coastal landscape in front of Warnemünde for centuries. The mountain, which was up to 20 meters high, was ripped apart by the waves. A walk along the coast to the Wilhelmshöhe viewpoint, where visitors can linger over a coffee and take in the spectacular view of the Baltic Sea, is especially popular with holidaymakers from the area. A diverse world tempts you to swim and go on excursions by foot or bicycle.
