After a short transfer to the main tramway station, board an exclusive tram, which is still Rostock's main transportation system, and ride into the heart of the city. Upon arrival, step back in time and start a brief orientation walk through Rostock, Mecklenburg Vorpommern's largest city. Proceed to northern Europe's oldest university, the University of Rostock, founded in 1419 and built in Italian Renaissance style. Continue on a leisurely stroll through the Kroepeliner Strasse and Am Neuen Markt and explore the quaint shopping streets, which have flourished since the reunification of East and West Germany in 1990. You'll see the 15th century Town Hall with its 18th century Baroque front structure, and St. Mary's church built around 1398. Enjoy a guided tour of this church before spending some time at your leisure (strictly time permitting). After reuniting with your guide, walk down to the jetty to begin a relaxing cruise along the Warnow River, transferring you back to Warnemunde. During your approximate 50 minute cruise, you'll be served some typical snacks and refreshing drinks or German beer. Note: The order of the sights may vary. St. Marien church is currently undergoing renovations; therefore, some paths of the church and the astronomical clock cannot be seen.

Customer Reviews for Rostock By Road, River & Rail
We chose not to go to Berlin, it was expensive, and if you got gastro there, not worth it.
Instead we spent the morning at leisure walking around Wandermunde just a few hundred metres away, and a very lovely location.
In the afternoon we took the tour of Rostock, by road rail and water. It was a different and enjoyable tour. Using the bus and the tram was a great way for us to see the ordinary part of town, and learn of it's history under occupation.
The tour of the town was pleasant, and the boat ride home to the cruise boat was excellent with a local Rostcker beer thrown in for free. Who could ask for more.
