Visiting Rostock

Rostock is a large port city famed for being home to one of the oldest universities in the world. It attracts visitors with almost a millennia of intriguing history, an appealing white-sand beach and a picture-perfect harbor. 

Once a significant Hanseatic trading city during the 13th century, the city features historical places of interest including St. Mary's Church, the Cultural History Museum and the Old Town wall and gates, just to name a few.

Home to the German Naval Headquarters, Rostock is a fitting host for the 2021 edition of UDT.
