Tourimuszentrale Rostock & Warnemünde
Neuer Markt 3
18055 Rostock

Rostock town centre

Shops housed in former warehouses or ancient town houses are the legacy of Rostock's Hanseatic past. The historical and maritime flavour of this traditional trading centre can also be felt when wandering around and enjoying the shopping in the town centre.

Great shopping in former warehouses
Shopping in Rostock centres on the Kröpeliner Strasse, while Lange Strasse and Doberaner Platz square are home to the complete range of department stores, fashion shops, specialist emporiums and boutiques. Bring home a local souvenir made from amber, a Buddelschiff (a tiny ship in a bottle) or a bottle of Rostock Kümmel, traditional schnapps from the region.
