Best Cocktails are Drunk Barefoot

Why should I write about a bar with a strange name like that? Well first of all because in Rostock there’s nearly no bar without a strange name and by the way, what is a not-strange-kind of name for bars? I don’t know. But see, I’m originally from Berlin and I have of course not seen […]

Neptun Shopping Centre – shopping inside an old shipyard

When visiting the Neptun Shopping Centre for the first time, you may notice the unusual architecture, which is really different from what is normal for a Shopping Centre. The reason goes back to the history of the hall: The Neptun Shopping Centre opened in 2008 and is located in the former “Neptunwerft” (“Neptun-shipyard”), an old shipbuilding […]

Ice-cold enjoyment at M-V’s biggest ice-stadium

All ice-princesses and ice-princes pay attention! If you want to do some sports in winter in Rostock, you can proceed on seductively slippery terrain. The biggest ice-stadium in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern welcomes you to go ice-skating every year from September to April. Every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, young and old meet at pleasant temperatures and cool DJ-music […]

The next stage leads you through an adjacent coastal forest with the appearance of a fairytale. The 3 miles mainly go straight on forest soil and a strip of grass (Caution: Midges!). On the way […]

Lax at the Beach

I do play Lacrosse in Rostock and I love it. Unfortunately it is a really uncommon sport in Germany – YET – but as a “Lacrosser” our mission is to grow the game. And that’s exactly what we try in Rostock. Since there is a Kieler Woche and the Travemünder Woche in Lübeck there has to be […]

Taking the high road/bike path

One of the things Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (MV) is very well known for, is its bicycling friendly countryside. There is a tremendously vast net of bike paths throughout the hole state. Most of these bike paths are marvelously located and run through the loveliest sights of nature. In this blog, I want to recommend a specific […]

Been there, done that – 3

Hello darkness my old friend   Coffee is the gasoline to my personal engines. It gets me going in the morning, recharges my batteries throughout the day, and sometimes even helps me to go to bed in the night. Needless to say, that I consume copious amounts of the dark brew. If I’m desperate, I’ll […]
