It may be a world away from frankfurters or lederhosen, but Rostock is so proud of its heritage, it's written all over the club badge. Book your Hansa Rostock football tickets and find out more.
This northern city's proud traditions go back centuries, to when Rostock's Hanseatic traders sailed as far as Britain. Return the favour with a minibreak: the ancient city-centre battlements and churches are worth a proper visit, then head for the fishing port of Warnemünde. Even late in the season, the Baltic coast is not the place to top up your tan, but the Alter Strom offers waterside cafes, bars and seafood.
Football matches in Rostock are a better day out than they once were, with the Hanseaten doing their best to exclude the "ultra" following in favour of true fans.
