City harbor

The area with the sailing habor along the Warnow is popular for relaxing. Access from the city center via Krämerstraße/Grubenstraße or the street ‚Am Kanonsberg‘ with a steep incline (alternatively direct access by car).

Old Town

The oldest district of Rostock is framed by the medieval city walls and the brick churches of St. Peter and St. Nikolai.

In the old town there are many slopes, narrow streets and cobblestones. The direct route from the city center is therefore not continuously overburdenable. Alternatively, driving directions to the Petrikirche are recommended (disabled parking available).
