History lovers will love Rostock, a city with a rich Hanseatic heritage that saw turbulent times in World War Two.

You’ll see a wealth of Soviet-era housing blocks and explore the small but perfectly formed Hanseatic centre, pausing to admire the beautiful (and pink) City Hall and imposing St Mary's Church.

Passing the ruined city walls and a former STASI prison, you’ll soon be in the surrounding countryside. Here, the highlights include the mighty medieval cathedral at Bad Doberan, which dominates the skyline, and Germany's longest linden tree avenue.
