Advice to visitors of Rostock
Arriving in Rostock could be a long ride when coming from Latin America, Africa or Asia; you might land in Hamburg, then travel by train to Rostock; or land in Berlin then catch a regional train, or land in Copenhagen then by train, ferryboat, and tram. So we suggest that you arrive September 18th giving yourself time to adapt to the Baltic Sea tonic environment, to the historical beauty of the Hanseatic City and to the delicate taste of the local beer. An "à la carte" discovery programme can be arranged for the early comers.
