This goes to all the travellers that love the outdoors and don’t want to stop doing sports. Although Rostock is not really good for any distances longer than 20km, it is still a beautiful place for running with lots of different sceneries to enjoy and different surfaces for every taste. Close to the inner city, you’ll find a big park that feels more like a forest in the countryside. Here you can enjoy wide, even paths as well as narrow, muddy cross country paths with roots and little hills to challenge you. The inner city harbour is another beautiful place for a run with stunning views over the Warnow and with old sailing ships and vessels for a very special feeling. In the evening this place will amaze you when the city and the harbour glow in orange and red colours (if you have the fortune that the weather is good). Within half an hour, public transport can take you to the Warnemünder beach that is several kilometres long to enjoy a beach run, or if you are keen for a longer run, go further and enjoy the cliff line.
I’m sure you’ll find something for your taste. Enjoy the run.
