Rostock Guide

The German city of Rostock is located in the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern region of northern Germany and lies on the Warnow River. The city's centre is roughly 12 km to the south of the Baltic Sea coast. A popular attraction in the city, and perhaps one of the prettiest, is the New Market Square (Neuer Markt). The 13th century, Gothic Town Hall is also there and interestingly had a Baroque facade and banqueting hall added in the 18th century. There are also six, 15th and 16th century restored gable houses in the square. The city used to have other examples of houses built in the Hanseatic style, that bordered the square, although they were all destroyed by air raids in 1942. The city is also home to the University of Rostock which was founded in 1419 and is one of the oldest universities in the world.

Rostock's port is Germany's largest and has grown to become one of Europe's most important. It has excellent road links and facilities including cafes, restaurants, shopping areas and a bureau de change. Ferry services using the port depart to Gedser in Denmark, with a 2 hour crossing time, Trelleborg in Sweden (5 hours and 45 minutes) and a super fast ferry to Hanko in Finland with a 22 hour crossing time.

Gedser Guide

Located at the most southerly point of Denmark, Gedser Odde is a village known for its sea, wind and flat landscape. The village, which lies on the Baltic Sea coast, has lovely views out to sea towards mainland Europe and when the winds begin to blow it is easy to see how exposed the village is. Visitors to the village can't fail to witness first hand the extreme power of nature when the huge Baltic Sea waves pound the coast in and around the village. Due to the village's geographic location it may appear to be quite calm to the south of the village but a short distance along the coast a storm could be raging.

The rough south point at Gedser Odde contrasts with the wide, friendly beach only a few hundred meters to the north and if visiting the village, you might be lucky and experience one of the quiet days you might get to see the Eider birds bobbing around on the water or the Cormorant's flying by.
