Fishing on the Rostock Baltic coast
Anglers in Rostock have the choice between the high seas or the Warnow. Good luck!
From zander to sea trout
The Baltic Sea coast also offers this: here you can indulge in a relaxing hobby with a fishing rod. Anglers in Rostock have the choice between the high seas or the Warnow, a river that stretches from Rostock city centre to Warnemünde. In the Warnow water, zander, perch, eel and lead are the main fish, and sometimes a flounder gets lost. In the Baltic Sea, with a bit of luck, you can catch cod, sea trout, herring or flounder.
Tourists can try their hand at fishing on the coast without any previous experience, perhaps on a fishing boat. In any case, a tourist fishing licence (€24) and a fishing permit (water card) for the Lower Warnow and inland waters or for the coast are required. Both are available at the tourist information offices in the city centre and in Warnemünde.
What do anglers in Rostock & Warnemünde need for their hobby?
Anglers need two documents in Rostock:
- the tourist fishing licence (for adults and young people from 14 years of age)
- a fishing permit for the desired body of water.
In principle, a fishing permit is required for every body of water in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Where can I get the documents for anglers?
The tourist fishing licence and the fishing permit are issued for you at the tourist information offices in the city centre, in Warnemünde and in Markgrafenheide. You present your identity card and fill out the application for a fishing licence and pay in cash or by EC or credit card.
Dispatch by post after advance payment
