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 […]

Enjoy A Royal Garden Experience

If you ask foreigners about Rostock, you often get two replies: “What’s a Rostock?” and “Ah yes, there’s the beach!“ However, the fact that Rostock has several other beautiful natural and recreational areas in addition to the beach often remains an insider tip even for the inhabitants. The botanical garden is no exception. It is […]

Bow Wave in Warnemünde aka. Warnifornia

*Source of featured picture. (The oh so famous “Fährwelle” in Warnemünde) Would surf-riding at the Baltic Sea seem like the most common things to do? You will be surprised. Even though the Baltic Sea does not provide as clean sets as you might find at the Atlantic Ocean, there are possibilities to surf-ride. Even here […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
