Maritime festival in Rostock
Hanse Sail, the Baltic region's biggest regatta for traditional sailing boats, attracts around half a million people to the Hanseatic town of Rostock every year. Everywhere you look there are tall ships, museum ships and vintage boats. The traditional sailing vessels are a particular highlight of the regatta, while on dry land there is also a fantastic programme of entertainment.
