The Hansestadt Rostock is a real experience for cultural and city fans, combined with Hanseatic architecture, a wide cultural scene, modern gastronomy and diverse shopping opportunities.
The oldest university in Northern Europe (anno 1418), churches, monasteries, city gates and the omnipresent clinker gothic give an idea of the Hanseatic flair of the past. Numerous museums and cultural offerings in exceptional venues such as a former yard or a former nunnery offer a varied program.
Rostock town hall
The town hall in Rostock is a complex of three houses, dating back to the 13th century. This makes it the oldest preserved building in the city. The Rostock town hall is one of the most important profane clinker gothic buildings in the area of the Baltic Sea, at the same level with the town halls in Lübeck and Stralsund. The medieval construction, however, is largely hidden behind baroque pre-structures and alterations today.
Guided tour in Rostock
The traditional clinker gothic in the historic center of Rostock still reminds us of the once-established power and wealth of the Hanseatic period. Ancient churches, monasteries and city gates create a unique atmosphere that invites you to stroll or to walk around. Get to know Rostock and the seaside resort Warnemünde during guided tours or guided city tours. Encounter testimonies of architecture from then and today, learn more about the city's history and experience maritime sights. Listen to stories from yesterday and today, visit the many different attractive corners of the Hansestadt and the seaside resort and enjoy your stay under expert guidance.
The city is idyllically situated in the countryside at Guldborgsund, many attractions and sights are within walking distance.
Næstved is one of the oldest cities in Denmark and got its city rights already in 1135. Until today the town is known for its lively trade, crafts and cultural life. The history of the city has also remained alive in all its development. In Næstved you will find the oldest town hall of Denmark.
Næstved Museum has two departments in the city. One is located in Helligåndshuset in the Ringstedgade where Næstveds story is told, the other one is in Boderne on Kirkeplads. Here you can find exhibitions with Holmegaard glass, Kähler ceramics and Næstved silver.
The city of Roskilde is located only 30 kilometers west of the Danish capital Copenhagen and is the second largest city of the Baltic Sea Island Zealand with almost 47,000 inhabitants. The town center is located on a slope above the Roskildefjord. The city is known for the Roskilde Music Festival, which has been held since 1971 and attracts around 120,000 spectators annually.
Copenhagen has already received several awards as the "most livable city in the world". Reasons for this are: the exciting architecture that characterizes the Danish capital in many places, its many green areas and its clean harbor, where you can even take a bath. With its gabled houses, narrow streets and elegant little towers, Copenhagen has preserved a lovley small town atmosphere. The pretty and kempt Copenhagen is one of the greenest European capitals: a large part of the city center consists of pedestrian zones, there are strict guidelines against pollution and often more bicycles than cars on the streets. Green spaces - among them the world famous Tivoli - are in abundance, and in the summer time, street cafés and restaurants are in high demand.
The little mermaid
The small bronze statue at Copenhagen's promenade "Langelinie" is not only the landmark of Copenhagen. It has now become the Danish national symbol.
Copenhagen has royal castles, monuments and insignia in abundance. Royal Copenhagen can be explored on foot or by bike.
