Where To Go For … a Döner

  So, imagine you’ve been shopping all day and are exhausted. Your stomach’s telling you for half an hour already that it’s hungry, but you are too spent to go home and cook. For the most authentic German experience we advise you to go and get a Döner. The Döner was actually invented in Germany […]

Exploring Rostock’s Alternative Side – JAZ

Rostock as a not too big city probably still has (almost) everything you can imagine and could probably need. Like you might already have discovered on this blog or other resources, there are loads of cool places like bars, cafés, public areas which are pretty enjoyable but unfortunately often also a little crowded. So if […]

Where To Go For… Ice Cream

Picture this: You have been shopping all morning in Rostock’s Kröpi, the heart of the city. It is a hot day. The sun is beating down on you. You are delirious, longing for absolution. Where should you go for delicious, cool, life-saving ice-cream? In the city centre, there are several places to choose from. And […]

Fröhlich Frozen Yogurt – Refreshing Sin

You’re probably an addict. You’re on sugar. Don’t worry – me too! Sugar fuels every cell in your brain, sugar is a reward to your brain, sugar is addictive. It is tough to break your habits, especially when it comes to the consumption of this sweet motherf*cker. You know that feeling when you get a […]

Sushilicious

Rostock and sushi!? Granted, that particular Japanese delicacy is not the first thing that pops up in one’s mind when thinking of a North-eastern German city, but it actually makes an aweful lot of sense to combine the omnipresent fish dishes of Rostock with the cuisine of the Far East. Even I have to admit […]

Cado’s – or French Crepe-Art

The past few weeks have been exceptionally warm and sunny in Rostock. Witnessing a heatwave always tempers my appetite for a solid meal, so I decided to have a lunch at Cado’s, my favourite crêperie in the Old Town district.  I only know about Cado’s because a good friend asked me to join her for […]

How To Do: Mensa in Rostock

As a group of four students: two of us German and the other two exchange students from Korea, we decided to create a little guide to show the latter two a local insight to Rostock. Check out our other blogs here and here. Q&A 1. I live in Erich Schlesinger Strasse. Where is the nearest […]

Glashagen – Back To Nature

Since the internet is swamped with people, who needs to show how happy they are all the time, and how down to earth they are (while taking a sip from their over-priced-Starbucks-coffee-to-go-cup), finding peace in nature and meditations, I thought, there must be people who will love it in Glashagen. Glashagen is not far from […]

Rostocker Artnight in the Old Town

On May, 25th the Rostocker Artnight took place in the Old Town  (by klicking on the link you find recent acitvities and events in the Old Town) where you could walk along the small cobblestoned streets and also into the Nikolai-and Petrichurch to look at new and old art from various local artists. The blue […]

The exhausting life of a student

When you travel to a new city and you are maybe a student yourself, it is always interesting to know how the daily life of students in the city you visit is. Of course, you can even use this knowledge to copy their behavior and feel like a local yourself and maybe get the chance […]

Father’s day — a boozy holiday

When you ask Germans why most of them have a day off on May 10th a lot of them will tell you that it is because of father’s day. But why should we get a free day just because of father’s day? Wasn’t there something else? Maybe something with an ascension? Oh yeah, the Ascension […]
