Warnemünde and Rostock

Yesterday our boat stopped at the habor in Warnemünde, Germany. There was a lot of activity of the quay in Warnemünde because a number of tall ships were in the harbor.

We took the train to the medieval town of Rostock—a key port in the Hansiatic League (Hansa=guilds). The architecture was similar to that in other leading cities of the Hansiatic League, notably Bruges.

  1. I would say Rostock's architecture is similar to that found in the Capital of the Hanseatic League, Lübeck. Afaik Bruges left the League well before its end in the 17th century and the Brick Gothic style common in Northern Europe was never that popular in Belgium.
