Hanseatic und University city of Rostock

Rostock is a more than 800-year-old Hanseatic city with a flourishing seaside resort, and it boasts miles of sandy beaches and unspoilt coastal forests. Located on the Baltic coast it brings together modern urban life, maritime heritage and lush green surroundings. Rostock and its charming seaside resort are the ideal place to enjoy some local culture and food and drink, or simply to wind down and relax at one of the beautiful beaches. The nearby Rostocker Heide, Germany’s largest coastal forest, offers plenty of space to surround yourself with nature and let the bracing climate restore body and mind. 


As a travel destination Rostock offers a whole host of ways to enjoy an exciting barrier-free holiday by the Baltic Sea. Sights of historical importance, many museums, cultural sites and shops, all have disabled access. You can get closer to nature in the Polarium and Darwineum at Rostock zoo, in the IGA Park and in the Rostocker Heide forest, for example, which is also great for longer handbiking tours. The seaside resort of Warnemünde has one of the region’s most modern beach entrances for disabled visitors, and you can hire wicker beach chairs and floating wheelchairs for an enjoyable day by the sea.
