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 […]

Around the Warnow River (Part 2)

In “Around the Warnow River (Part1)” you came along the port, strawberry fields and equestrian farms and stopped in “Stuthof”. 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 […]

It’s not spooky in the ghost forest!

With the weather getting better, lots of people go to the beaches in Warnemünde to make the most out of the warm days at the sea. But if you’re not a big fan of overcrowded places (like me) and really just want to do some relaxing sun bathing without laying towel to towel, Nienhagen is a […]

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 […]

A Beach for Adventurers

    Beaches can quickly get pretty crowded in the summer heat, and laying around like a bunch of “Sardinen in der Büchse” (as we Germans tend to say in those situations), is not fun at all. So if you have had enough of fighting over a piece of sand as if it were the […]

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 […]

What’s on the other side?

  Ever wondered what is actually on the other side of the Warnow in Rostock? While taking a walk in the sun with some friends along the harbour in Rostock, I asked them if they had ever been to the other side of the Warnow, and one of them said “Actually yes! That’s Gehlsdorf. It’s beautiful […]

Diving Dog in Baltic Sea

Spring always seems to come soon and summer even sooner. I have a very active dog and his name is Noah. He is that kind of dog that needs action to at least 2 3 times a day. We both enjoy going for a walk – he often more than I do. Noah is a […]
