Despite being nearly 800 years old, the former Hanseatic city of Rostock has never been closed to new developments, yet it has retained its original charm. Therefore, guests at Rostock hotels still enjoy the brick façades, impressive churches, and gables from many eras that speak of the wealth of the medieval citizens of the city. As visitors approach, they are greeted by the high tower of St. Petri, which once served as a landmark for seafaring. Reserve a hotel in Rostock today, and enjoy other sites, such as St. Marien, the Gothic basilica with the astronomical clock from 1472.
Only a few steps separate the Gothic basilica from the impressive city hall with its seven towers. The city centre is dominated by Gothic buildings, but structures from newer eras also make their mark, brick being a common architectural theme. The vibrant cultural life, the museums, the theatre, cinemas, restaurants, and pubs mean that there are many opportunities to get to know people in Rostock. Hotels such as the Hotel am Fischereihafen, Hotel Ostseeland, and Hotel Steigenberger Sonne give both tourists and business travellers a wide variety to choose from when visiting.
