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 […]

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 […]

Water of Life at the Baltic Sea

There is currently an abundance of (super) hero/heroines. I’d always like to gloat at them all with a saying that deserves far more coverage: “I can make whisky disappear – what’s your superpower?” When I first arrived in Rostock, I didn’t find it particularly easy to find many places that offered a decent range of […]

The one and only Fusion

In the last ten years, you could observe an upcoming trend throughout Germany that was formerly reserved to specific music elites like metal or goa (psychedelic music) fans. The festival is nowadays an activity which nearly every adventurous person between 16 and approximately 50 (exceptions confirm the rule) plans on doing during the summertime at […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

The “Seawolves” – NBA feeling in Rostock

Regularly by the beginning of October, when the outside air temperature begins to drop and Rostock’s alleys turn into a dark foggy loneliness a la “Sherlock Holmes” there is one energetic place where people join together to see thrilling Basketball.  In case you have one of these weekend days when nothing but junk determines TV […]

Been there, done that – 2

Chapter 2 – My Rave Renaissance   Right off the bat, the headline is a bit misleading. I do not in fact, nor did I ever, consider myself a raver. The alliteration just sounded too good to not use in a headline. Nevertheless, there still is some truth in the phrase, as my party going […]
