Sailboat Docked at Pier, Berlin (Rostock), Germany
Rostock once had the largest trading fleet on the Baltic Sea, with Stadthafen as the port. Wander the waterfront and watch the herring trawlers unload during the spring season. In the summer, get swept away in a flurry of colors as the area is taken over by Hanse Sail, when 250 traditional ships dock in the city.
St. Mary's Church, Berlin (Rostock), Germany
In Rostock, Germany you can travel back in time inside the town's many historical buildings. Check out churches that withstood World War II, including the famous Marienkirche. You can also see churches that have been carefully refurbished since then, such as Petrikirche. Visit the Kulturhistorisches Museum, where you can see historic monasteries and medieval sacred art.
Based on the facade of Rostock's Rathaus, or town hall, you'd never guess how old this building is. But when you step inside, you're instantly transported back to the 13th century. One of the oldest town halls in Germany, the Rathaus is a must-see for history lovers.
Seafood is Rostock's specialty. Try the Baltic herring, delivered to the docks by the boatful. And if fish isn't your thing, enjoy Mecklenburger Rippenbraten, mouth-watering pork stuffed with lemons, apples, plums and raisins. Wash it all down with a local brew or a taste of Rostocker Doppelkümmel, a caraway-flavored schnapps.
Cruise to Germany and head to the popular shopping street Kropeliner Strasse, which intersects Universitatsplatz, a triangular square lined with colorful Gothic-style buildings.
