Silversea Luxury Cruises A Rostock

Rostock, situated on the banks of the River Warnow and the Baltic shore, is a turntable for travelers and goods to and from Scandinavia and the Baltic countries. In fact, it is Germany’s largest port in the Baltic. The city presents an intriguing architectural mix: medieval and 1950's architecture in the centre, modern housing blocks and 19th-century villas in some of the suburbs. The cityscape of Rostock has been shaped by eight centuries of eventful history. View more

Starting out as a north German marketplace for merchants and craftsmen, Rostock soon became the largest and most important city in Mecklenburg and Western Pomerania. It wrestled privileges from the feudal princes such as free passage to the Baltic Sea, the coining privilege and full jurisdiction over its own affairs. The decline of the Hanseatic League in the Middle Ages, a devastating fire and several wars took their toll. In the 18th and 19th centuries, Rostock was revived by an upswing of trade and commerce. The industrial mainstays of the city include to this day shipbuilding and fishing, to which new high-tech industries have been added in recent years. Warnemünde, nine miles from Rostock, is an attractive, fashionable seaside resort. A small fishing village back in the Middle Ages, the town today boasts splendid villas along with fishermen’s cottages and captains’ mansions. The area along the Alter Strom (old river) has undergone a major renovation and many of the buildings house quaint shops, boutiques, cafés and small restaurants. It is a delightful place to explore on your own. Our call in this port provides the opportunity for an excursion to Germany’s dynamic capital city, Berlin.
