Let the day fade away pleasantly at the banks of the Warnow

The Banks of the Warnow

After a tough week at the University, one of the best ways to relax is hanging out at the banks of the Warnow. You can go for a walk along the bank and watch small sailing ships. If you’re hungry, you can go to one of the nice restaurants or bars. But what I like most is to meet friends and have a nice barbeque in the evening. We have tasty salads, crunchy bread and of course original German sausages, but sometimes fish too. You will see that on a summer weekend the bank of the Warnow is filled with people having barbeques. And that’s the special thing about the area: it has a fantastic atmosphere for hanging out with your friends, talking about everything under the sun and stocking up some energy. For your barbecue you can buy a disposable grill, food, and beer in one of these shops: Edeka and Lidl. And if it so happens that you forgot something for your barbeque, no problem! There are a lot of friendly people around you who may be willing to help you out. One further note: in Germany you’re allowed to drink alcoholic beverages in public from the age of 18.

One interesting phenomenon which can be seen on the bank: people playing with little pieces of wood.It sounds strange, but it’s a really funny game. You have to try it out! The name of this game is Kubb. It’s a Swedish Viking game. When I saw people playing this game for the first time, I was really curious about what they were doing. One evening my friends and I met some of these people, and they showed us how to play. And what shall I say… the rules of the play are simple and time after time it is fun to play 🙂

On this map you can see where the best place is for having a barbecue, and playing Kubb at the Warnow.
