The over 800-year-old city with its 31 districts is extremely diverse. Depending on the personal preferences and requirements, families, students and seniors can live comfortably in the lively city centre, in apartments near the centre or slightly further away in the country. No matter what part of the city you decide to live in, the Baltic Sea, with its long beaches and fresh sea air, will always be very close by!
As Rostock has been a university city since the 15th century, in this large city with a heart you will not only find great shopping opportunities, but also a varied range of cultural activities. Whether you are going to the theatre or the seaside, the people of Rostock enjoy using the well-developed public transport network. As you use the S-Bahn, the tram or the city buses to travel around Rostock, you will be within easy reach of the seaport, the central station with an ICE express train connection, and the nearby Hamburg and Rostock-Laage Airports, which serve as your gates to the world.
In the historic city centre, you will find trendy restaurants, the popular ‘Kröpeliner Straße’ shopping street and the main building of the University of Rostock. On foot, you can reach the heart of the old town from the housing in the ‘Steintor-Vorstadt’ area: this central living quarter has all the facilities you will need on a daily basis, as well as many schools and childcare establishments. Just a stone’s throw from the city centre, the central station area also has a wide range of spacious apartments.
This area is connected to the south of the city: the prefabricated housing complexes constructed in the 1960s have been completely modernised in recent years. Meanwhile, spacious green areas shape the appearance of Reutershagen, a district with 18,000 inhabitants. The houses and apartments in Gehlsdorf are also surrounded by greenery. Opposite the old town on the shore of the Warnow River, Gehlsdorf has charming, quiet housing complexes and appealing sport and leisure facilities.
In the area where farmland spread 150 years ago, the hip Kröpeliner Tor Vorstadt quarter now enjoys great popularity thanks to trendy shops and an interesting cultural scene, especially amongst students.
Those who are looking for good-value housing in Rostock will often strike a bonanza in Dierkow in the northeast of the city, near the relaxation area of Rostock Heath. The proximity to the Baltic Sea is also evident in the north-west of Rostock: from Lichtenhagen with its restored prefabricated buildings or Lütten Klein with its row of nightclubs and cinemas, the sea is just ten minutes away.
You can live even closer to the water in the seaside resort of Warnemünde: each year, the charm of this former fishing village attracts thousands of holidaymakers. Whether you want a home for the entire family, a quiet place to enjoy your retirement or somewhere to invest, in Rostock you will find property of different sizes and with different furnishing in diverse housing complexes.
