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”.

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 […]

Cycling to the cliff coast

Once you arrive in the center of Rostock on a nice summer day, you should definitely visit a nice place at the coast. Well of course you could just take the S-Bahn to Warnemünde. But that is where everybody goes, and in the summer it can be very crowded. Why don’t you take the bike to […]
