the Hanseatic city Rostock is a circle-free city in the north of Germany. It was created at the latest 1218 and is at the underflow and the delta of the Warnow, where the narrow river itself 12-15 km before delta inSea widens. The Kyzziner, which belonged to the slavischen master federation of the Wilzen and must around 600 settlements have already had there, called this Auseinanderfliessen in its language roztoc and gave to the city thus their name. Rostock is today the largest citythe Land of the Federal Republic Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and has almost 200,000 inhabitants. Rostock is to Kiel and Luebeck also the largest port at the German Baltic Sea coast. Culturally as also economically it is considered as the most important city in the country. It is very coined/shaped by thoseSituation at the Baltic Sea, the port, the Hanse and their brick gothic, as well as the University of Rostock, which was already created 1419 and among oldest Northern Europe ranks in such a way. Rostock lies in the region Mecklenburg and still belonged until 1934to the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg Schwerin. The city is one of the four upper centers of the country. Economically the university dominates clearly as largest employers of the city apart from shipbuilding and navigation as well as the tourism and service sector.
Table of contents
Rostock lies rather exactly in thatnorthern center Mecklenburg Vorpommerns. The city extends on both sides the underflow of the Warnow, which removed as Unterwarnow from the rust ocher city centre up to approximately 12 kilometers for coast are navigable. Before the delta into the Baltic Sea with the local part warn-flow widens thoseUnterwarnow toward the east to the Breitling out. Here is the rust ochers sea port. The southeast and the western Warnowufer are densely populated, during the northeast by rural local parts and that approx. 6,000 hectares large coastal forest rust ocher heath one coins/shapes.
The Geografie of the old part of town, in addition, those the area over warn-flow in the course of the time visibly changed. Where today at the beach a major road runs was in former times really beach and is enough for bridges led into the navigable water. Around thoseIn addition city ran for a long time a water ditch to the protection, which - useless become - was corrected in the course of the destabilization and the development of the city port. In old photos and illustrations still the bridge before the Petritor is and before thatTo see Kröpeliner gate, which does not exist today any longer. Beside the Fischer port of the Haedge - port with the coal dock - today Haedge peninsula was built -.
Beyond that also the discharge of the Warnow is in warn-flows changed. Was it in former timesthe old person river, is it today the new river, which was removed also clearly. Also the Breitling was changed with the plant of large harbor basins.

office Warnow west
where the Hanseatic city on the Baltic Sea does not border is surrounded it by the districtBath Doberan. A majority of it ranks among the so-called. Rust ocher› bacon belts ‹, in which since the 90ern many houses developed built and trade areas. It concerns the following municipalities: In the northeast the office-free municipality Graal Müritz, inThe east the office rust ocher heath (with the municipalities yellow sand, Rövershagen, Mönchhagen and Bentwisch), in the southeast the office Carbäk (with Broderstorf and Roggentin), in the south the office Warnow east with Kessin. In the south into the northwestRostocks borders on the office Warnow west (with the municipalities Papendorf, Kritzmow, Lambrechtshagen, as well as Elmenhorst/Lichtenhagen), interrupted only from a short bordering on the office bath Doberan country with the municipality Admannshagen Bargeshagen.
history around the establishment Rostocks history is simultaneous around the establishment of the Mecklenburgian ruler sex. Both accompanies with one another andcaused each other. Already long before the actual establishment of the city Rostock trunks settle, already since approx. 600 the Kyzziner belonging to the sayful people of the Wilzen, then turns so mentioned in the area around the Warnow. Concrete written vouchers,which settlement and attachment where existed are however in 12. Century inside conceivablly unclearly. As sources chronicles of the Slawen serve, in addition, the Icelandic Knýtlinga Saga, in which of the landing Knuts of the large one (994/995 1035) reports with Raudstokkbecomes. In the time of the town foundation arguments take place particularly between the realm that Saxonia and that the Abodriten , also the Danes are strongly involved into this conflict. 1159 -1185 finds so regularly fleet courses of the Danish king Waldemar I., the son Knud Lavards (1096-1131), against which turns instead of, which threaten the southDanish islands. As the first real voucher Rostocks is considered however the report of the Saxo Grammaticus in its to 16bändiger history of Denmark, the acts of the Danes (gesta danorum). 1160lead the Danish king Waldemar I. and the duke of Saxonia Heinrich the lion, one of the most powerful princes of the realm, together a crusade against the Abodriten. NIC plumb bob, that after the murder Knuts IV.Prince of the Abodriten becomes,if Heinrich tries to strike the lion during this crusade, however few kilometers south of Rostock with the castle Werle falls. Its sons Pribislaw and Wertislaw are driven out from the Abodritenland. 1161, then continue to report Saxo Grammaticus, destroy then thosewith the Saxonia allied Danes under Waldemar I. the slawische prince castle Rostock (urbs roztoc). However Pribislaw is subjected after some arguments 1167 Heinrich to the lion and on it by it with Westmecklenburg is belehnt, a large part of the realm at that time thatAbodriten, however without those only 1160 furnished county Schwerin. After a common Pilgerfahrt 1172 after Jerusalem of Heinrich and Pribislaw Heinrich grinds one of his daughters with Pribislaws son, boron vienna I.(1178-1227). During Pribislaw thus its rule by a highMeasure of distance vision secures, develops however later between its son boron vienna I. and Nikolaus, the son Wertislaws, an open war around the rule follow-up, which leads up to the open war. A seal from this time shows Nikolaus as a princeof Rostock (nicolaus de roztoc), as a riding Krieger with sword.
After 1160/61 the prince castle Rostock had been destroyed, the settlement with a Handelswik was again developed. Still in 12. Century craftsmen and buyers had established themselves there, among them Holsteiner, Saxonia, Westphalia, Dane and Slawen. In former times a voucher is 1189 the existence of a castle, a market and a St.Clemens church with German priest. Around 1200, when the settlement in the Warnowniederungen had become too small, became on oneHill on the neighbouring, opposite side of the Warnow, Rostocks oldest town centre again and after Lübi model based. The old person market developed at that time around the Petrikirche and in such a way existed two first rust ochers settlements next to each other. In addition created 1195 probably Friesen alsoalready the fishing village warn-flows, however in 19. Century political and economical in the shade Rostocks remains. Rostock against it becomes fast the actual principal item Mecklenburgs. 1214 struggle Waldemar II. Emperor Friedrich II.the leaning sovereignty over the country off.1218 then are for the first time in writing testified the settlement around the Petrikirche: In first document of 24 delivered. June 1218 confirms Heinrich boron vienna I.,› the prince of Mecklenburg and gentleman over Rostock ‹, the Lübi municipal law. Therefore this appliesDate, not coincidentally the Johannistag, today also as the actual birthday of the city, so important in the catholic church. Nevertheless the document is not a birth certificate, since this existed long after the model of the 1143 created city Luebeck. 1227 endthe Danish leaning sovereignty with the death of Heinrich boron vienna II. due to the battle with Bornhöved. 1229 then become after the Mecklenburgian main landing hurrying between boron vienna III. and its brothers, this territorial gentleman over the country: Heinrich boron vienna III. Rostock receives asthe principal item, the old country Kessin, the land strip of the Baltic Sea coast from Fulgen to the Ribnitzer Bodden, including the flowing Recknitz. Whereupon the two further partial cities in Rostock form. In the medium-sized town at the new market 1230 with first becomeBuilding of the Marienkirche begun, where 1232 the second settlement (late medium-sized town) is testified, from 1252 exists then a first voucher of the new city around the Jakobikirche destroyed today.
Rostock at present the Hanse
the beginning of the development Rostocks to the Hanseatic city begins at the Tiefpunkt pilotfishes dock ore around with death Friedrichs II. 1250 and the short reign of Konrad IV., which a Interregnum follows. The realm force seems into be broken this time. Cities and territories erstarkten. Thus the first rust ocher city book develops exactly in the time inter+rain around (1254-1273). 1251 receive Rostock before already from the Danish king Abel the same trade privileges as Luebeck and 1252, thosethird rust ochers partial city created, the confirmation of the town status is of 1218 is probably already repeated, in which now also the exemption from duty in the rule Rostock is confirmed, what the basis forms for the urban powerful position. Those finds expression in the purchase of the rust ochersHeath (1252) for 450 M Pf., of boron vienna II. The forest area secured over centuries wood products, building timber, game, etc. for the city.
As itself in an advisory manner over economic and political questions, Rostock exists 1257 the councilmen of the cities Luebeck, Rostock and Wismarstill from these three from each other separated partial cities, which unite only 1265. 1262 decide prince boron vienna III. over it together with its sons (determines to 18. June 1262; carried out to 29. June 1265). Whereupon the new market becomes the center thatCity and to the protection a Stadtmauer built, those approx. 1 km ² encloses, an area, in 19. Century outward does not grow. In its largest expansion this Stadtmauer had a height of seven meters and was up toa meter wide. Into three meters wooden walks along the battlements could be put on if necessary. In addition receives Rostock of city gates, from which this very day the Kröpeliner gate and the stone gate, which replaced the cow gate early as Hauptportal of the city, exist. Nevertheless appliesthe cow gate today as oldest received town-gate of Northern Germany. At the new market also the city hall develops after 1265 in addition. Two houses are only connected for this purpose, which soon third is added. Before these a gothical looking wall becomes alsosieve towers built, as well as until 1500 a splendour front with summerhouse course added, which does not exist today no more. An illustration of it only still is on the Vicke Schorler role.
The sister of boron vienna III., queen of Denmark Margarete Sprenghest creates 1270 alsothe Cistercian monastery, after an excessive quantity to the thanks because before Rostock shipwreck suffered it and was saved. On efforts Rostocks was created the monastery within the walls of the city, around the emergence of a further partial city mglw. over the dog castle and somgl. To avoid arguments in the future. 1277 end then the rule of boron vienna III., which assistance of its sons governed Johann and Waldemar already before; 1266 he already let administer his affairs in Rostock of Waldemar. The city tried in thatTime constantly to drive by rather gentle force, the prince out from the dominating function which these did not know to really prevent. Thus an increasing Selbstständigkeit of the city developed in this time.
The hanseatische tradition of the city is today clear untilnoticeably. In conscious support to it Rostock carries the title Hanseatic city since 1990 also again. Definitely it began with it, as itself end 13. Century Rostock together with Wismar, grab forest, and Stralsund of the Hanse attaches. Twenty yearslater, 1323, by Rostock the small fishing village warn-flow the Danes bought. Although warn-flow for a long time rust ochers a Exklave remains, the city can secure itself so the free entrance to the Baltic Sea. Power and the influence always take in the futuremore too. 1325 acquire the city with the right of coining money the right, its own coin, the Mark of rust ochers of Pfennigs to coin/shape. Beyond that Rostock 1358 acquires the full jurisdiction. Thus Rostock becomes one of the most important members of the Hanse, the portis long the most important of the country. Indication of the meaning of the city is above all that 1419 with the University of Rostock one of the oldest universities of Northern Europe are created. Of Pope Martin V.the establishment of a theological faculty is however still forbidden.in addition 1472 are finished the astronomical clock for the Marienkirche by the Uhrenmacher Hans Düringer. Also 1476 a first letterpress printing are already created.
Even if Rostock was up to the last Hans day 1669 member of the Hanse, began with the Erstarken of landesfürstlichen powerover the cities also their end. At Rostock that is to be seen very clear. Pope Innozenz VIII. explains 1484. the Jacobikirche in bull to the cathedral pin. The fact that the rust ochers keep themselves first against it leads to one from 1486 to1491 continuous cathedral feud, after which the Schweriner demands dukes penalty, higher deliveries requires, as well as soldiers for the Mecklenburgian army. Beyond that Rostock is occupied by the bishop von Ratzeburg 1487 with the church spell, what means that the University of the cityleft must. Only the Pope permits 1488 the return.
After around 1520 the reformatorischen teachings Martin Luther come to Rostock, the reformation becomes generally accepted relatively fast. Already in April 1531 the advice of the city decides on the commitment thatreformatorischen theory in services.
1565 come it to further arguments with Schwerin, which have large consequences. Among other things it goes thereby around the introduction of a beer share in favor of the dukes. Johann Albrecht I.pulls with 500 riders, after Rostock it thatformal Huldigungseid refused, by stone gate in city and leaves 1566 stone gate, which part of the Stadtmauer up to the cow gate and› the tower on the Rammelsberg ‹, which predecessors of the today's situation shrub tower sharpen, around among other things from these stones oneTo build fortress in the today's rose garden. Probably in addition, in order to control and it to nevertheless constantly enter be able the city during its absence. Only the first rust ochers hereditary contract of 21. September 1573, in that the national prince the hereditary rule overthe city is guaranteed for centuries, Rostock thus on long time commits themselves, and it in addition as highest judges to be recognized, terminates the conflict. The citizens sharpen in the following spring the fortress. From 1575 to 1577 then the reconstruction takes placethe wall, as well as the situation shrub tower and the stone gate in the style of the Netherlands Renaissance. The inscription sit intra width unit concordia et publica felicitas, which is to be read this very day on the gate, refers directly to the conflict with thatDuke.
Rostock in the dreissigjährigen war
during the dreissigjährigen war (1618-1648), which the final end of the Hanse caused, suffered Rostock strongly under constantly changing occupations and plunderings.
After those Swedenstarting from 1623 at the old person river in warn-flows, at the time still the discharge of the Warnow into the Baltic Sea, tariff raised and as the trade in the port for decades was suppressed, came it starting from 1624 to the Auffestung of the city, as alsoon the map to see is. However she was occupied 1627 by troops of the emperor, from which she loose-bought however end of the yearly again.
1628 received boiling stone from emperor Ferdinand II.after the joggle of the two dukes in Januaryas war remuneration the herzögliche became over the duchy Mecklenburg and the diocese Schwerin, as well as the title› a general of the Baltic and oceanic sea ‹. <ref> see for this the digitization of the surrender contract of the city Rostock on Wikisource. The likewise transferred here in particular are interestinghandwritten notes of unknown quantities hand, which the contract parts commentate regarding their actual conversion. </ref> In the same year it let an attachment plant establish in the own interest, in order to undertake on it conquest Pommerns, which failed during the four-month FE storage Stralsunds however. ItsRule ended 1631, after the troops of the emperor before Sweden capitulate and› the Sweden time began ‹.
Only end of the dreissigjährigen war, 1648, drew themselves Sweden also out warn-flow back, referred however further› the Sweden tariff ‹. At the latest with the fire to11. August 1677, which destroyed a third of the city, thus about 700 houses, came to Rostock completely into the political and economic Bedeutungslosigkeit. Also the number of inhabitants dropped in such a way in the time of 1594 to 1677 of 14.800 to 5.000.
only 19. Century brings a new wealth, which points itself clearly to many buildings and plants of this time to the city with the unfassenden industrialization. Around 1830 the rust ochers begin, also outside of the city wall borders toobuild. Mansion and worker quarters develop. 1832 became unnecessary parts of the attachment torn off, those and a garden plant at the stone gate is put on. 1852 are finished the first German screw steamer and 1870 receive the University of its current main building. Toward end of theCentury, 1891, are created› the Neptun dockyard and engine works AG ‹as the first industrielle large-scale enterprise Mecklenburgs. If the city has 1890 still around the 44,000 inhabitants, there is 1939 over 121.000. The twentieth century bring then finally for Rostock those probablymost obvious changes. With the aircraft plants of Ernst Heinkel becomes Rostock finally the modern industrial city. Starting from 1933 the works are extended, new manufacturing plants in the quarter Marienehe to develop and Rostock to an emphasis of the armaments industry of the third realm are developed. Which notonly to the consequence it has that forced laborers are employed by Heinkel, but also that the city becomes an important attack target of the allied ones in the Second World War. the Royal air Force bombards 1942 promptly the works of the companies Heinkel and Arado.Submarine threw and two aircraft factories can be smashed in such a way. Bombs destroy Rostock and warn-flow thereby to 40 per cent.
Rostock after the world wars
the balance at the end of the waris frightening for Rostock: By once 10535 houses in the city is 2611 completely destroyed, further 6735 damaged. By the Bombardements 1942 among other things the district court, the Jakobikirche, the cow gate, the district administration office, the Nikolaikirche, the higher regional court became destroyed,the Petrikirche, the Petritor, the post office and Telegrafenamt, the city theatre and the stone gate. Beyond that two hospitals, eight schools, as well as the roads and utility systems. At the 1. May 1945 becomes in Rostock the Second World War by the red one Army terminates. It does not take place the reconstruction of the destroyed city, while however much cannot be saved, some to be saved wants. From 1952 to the German reunification Rostock is district city of the northernmost district of the GDR. In this timethe city continues to grow on over 250.000 inhabitants. Large disk's building settlements develop in the new peripheral areas. Only with the German reunification the city experiences a strong decrease in population (z.Zt. approx. 198,500 inhabitants). As historical Tiefpunkt of this time August 1992 can seenbecome, when it came in the quarter Lichtenhagen to encroachments hostile to foreigners, which coined/shaped the picture of the city still years after. An answer Rostocks to it was above all the initiative› multicolored instead of brown ‹. Despite everything however the events are from these daysand above all the role of the policy, by which the conflict escalated probably only, not yet completely enlightened up. Multicolored likewise the international horticulture exhibition (IGA) was, which aligned Rostock 2003. In the same year the Warnowtunnel was opened. The common applicationwith Leipzig around delivering the olympic summer games 2012 however failed with international preselection by the IOC to 18. May 2004.

after the establishmentthe city and the combination of the quarters Rostock acquires in 13. Century the large rust ochers heath as well as some nearby villages (Bartelsdorf, Bentwisch, Brodersdorf, Kassebohm, Kessin, Rövershagen, Riekdahl, Stuthof, Willershagen and Gragetopshof). Most of these places became however later again thanindependent municipalities led and only in 20. Century again the city Rostocks attached (table compares). In 14. Century acquires the city the village warn-flows and holds so the entrance to the sea. In 20. Century inside is Warn-flow rust ochers a Exklave. A closed townscape exists only starting from 1934. One can hold thus three stages of the town development: First in 13. and 14. Century, second after the industrialization, thus since the first half 20. Centuryand the third after that 2. World war (see diagram). In detail following municipalities and/or Gemarkungen were integrated into the city Rostock:

the number of inhabitants of the city exceeded the border of 100.000 by the year 1935, whereby Rostock became the large city. 1989 reached the total population with approximately 254,000 their historical highest level. Since the turnin the GDR the city lost nearly 60,000 inhabitants because of high unemployment, the way course of many inhabitants into the surrounding countryside and the decline in the birthrate. The average age of the population was 2003 at 43.5 years. End of 2005 lived in Rostock according to statistics booklet of the Hanseatic city197,218 inhabitants.
The following overview shows the numbers of inhabitants after the respective area conditions. Until 1833 it concerns usually around estimations, afterwards census results or official updating of the respective statistic offices and/or the city administration. The data refer starting from 1843on „the localpresent population “, starting from 1925 on the resident population and since 1966 on „the population at the place of the main dwelling “. 1843 ago the number of inhabitants was determined in non-uniform collection procedures.
- A. Census result
goods the turns still heaths, which resisted the Christianisierung by force, became the catholicism at the latest also Pribislaw introduced to Mecklenburg and thus also the region around Rostock. However history is above all the Pope coined/shaped the rust ochers quite also by a conflict with the church and. Thus the city was already reformed 1531 and was thusover centuries Protestant. Prevailing thereby the lutherische confession was. The city had its own Superintendenten and its own religious Ministry.
Today the Protestant church municipalities of the city belong to that to the Propsteien Rostock north, Rostock east and Rostock south within the parish district Rostock Evangelical-Lutheran regional church Mecklenburgs.
The rust ochers church municipalities are Biestow, Evershagen, large small bank municipality, holy spirit, city center municipality (with the churches pc. Marien, pc. Nikolai, pc. Petri and pc. Jakobi - university church), Luther pc. - Andreas municipality, Lütten small, Schmarl, Slüter, pc. Johannis, pc. Michael,Pc. Thomas, Studentengemeinde, Südstadt, Toitenwinkel and Warnemünde.
In 19. Then again catholics drew century into the city. They created 1872 the first Pfarrgemeinde since the reformation. Since 1909 there is also again for the first time a catholic church in Rostock, the Christ church.The municipality belonged - like completely Mecklenburg - first to the Apostoli Vikariat of the Nordi missions, whose jurisdiction was connected to Osnabrück continuously with the bishop chair. 1930 became the area officially part of the diocese Osnabrück (Dekanat Mecklenburg). 1941 became thatDekanat Mecklenburg into a western, a middle and an eastern conference district divided. By the fixing of the boundaries after the Second World War it became ever more difficult for the Osnabrücker bishop to notice its office business in Mecklenburg. Thus 1946 the Bischöfliche Kommissariat Schwerin developed, outthat 1973 the Bischöfliche office Schwerin with a bishop as „a residing bishop “came out. This changed after establishment of the ore diocese Hamburg 1995 into this new ore diocese . The Pfarrgemeinden of the city Rostock belongs thus today to the Dekanat Rostock of the Erzbischöflichen of officeSchwerin within the ore diocese Hamburg.
In the year 1971 the Christ church was blown up, since it was town-planning plans never carried out in the way.
Beside the two large churches there is a Evangelist-freechurch municipality Baptisten , those in Rostock also still free churches, under itEvangelist methodistische church pc. Michaelis (Methodist), a municipality of the community of the seventh tag Adventisten and the Christian center federation of freechurch Pfingstgemeinden. Furthermore there is the nationalchurch community. Beyond that also the Christian community is represented.
Today it also showsa Jewish municipality in Rostock. This has today again 600 members and is since short also in possession of a new community center with synagog. The municipality is cared for by the Landesrabbiner William Wolff.
Particularly by the time of the division of Germany coined/shaped is Rostock today, if not predominantly atheistisch, so nevertheless areligiös, and practicing Christians are with Jews and Muslims in the religious minority.
like most other cities in the Middle Ages and in the early modern times had also Rostock its own coinage. Usually consisted the coined/shaped coins of copper or silver. Were coined/shaped above all Schillings (up to the first half of the 17.Jhd), Pfennigs (starting from the second half 17. Jhd.) and even valleys (around the center 17. Jhd). The last rust ochers coin 1864 were coined/shaped. The Münzmeister of the Pfennigs was called among other things Johann Heinrich mountain(Münzmeister from 1750 to 1776), Franz Heinrich fire (Münzmeister from 1776 to approx. 1794) and Benjamin stone refuge (Münzmeister of approx. 1848 to 1859).
city administration and mayor
at the point of the city stood sincethat 13. Century the advice with first 10, later 24 councilmen. The Proconsules and/or mayor had the presidency. In 19. Century even gave it to 3 mayors. Starting from 1925 the mayors carry the title mayor (list of the rust ochers mayors). This was selected over centuries by the advice of the city. Since 2002 he is selected directly by the people.
As agency of the citizens there is a city agency, which carries the designation in Rostock citizenry (in other cities this committee is calledalso local council, town council or advice of the city). The members of the citizenry are selected by the citizens of the city on 5 years. After the omission of the five-per cent hurdle to the local election to 13. June 2004 majority conditions in the rust ochers citizenry becameunclearly. The citizenry consists at present of 53 delegates; the CDU and the Party of Democratic Socialism place in each case 13, the SPD 11, alliance 90/Die the Green 6, the FDP and the rust ochers federation in each case 3 and to other 4 (under it GREY ONES and SAV). Chairman is the president of the citizenry. This additional representative office in the city was introduced 1990 beside the office of the mayor by „the law over the autonomy of the municipalities and districts in the GDR “by the people chamber at that time of the GDR. Itfirst full-time one noticed. Since the change of the municipal constitution 1994 it is only honorary implemented. The president of the citizenry leads the meetings, prepares these and represents the citizenry outward. It represents the city together with the mayor.
The mayor of the Hanseatic city Rostock became to 27. February 2005 Roland Methling (non-party) in the first ballot selected.
coats of arms, flag and Logo
major item: Rust ocher of flags
the today's coat of arms is already since 1367 as seal temples demonstrably. In a sign is on blue reason walk golden seize above with raised tail and broken open red tongue - the herrschaftliche indication of the rust ochers prince. Among them silver (and/or.

in thatHanseatic city, as well as the next environment are settled apart from many smaller enterprises, the University of Rostock, shipbuilding industry, shipping companies, biotechnology, food industry and software enterprise.
Rostock has the second largest German Baltic Sea port, the transatlantic harbor to Luebeck. SinceYears the number 1 in passenger traffic is this port traffic junction for journeys to Gedser/Denmark, Trelleborg/Sweden, vent play/Latvia, Finland, Estonia and Russia. After end of war in the city the present became strong,destroyed port in work of several years again repaired. The economic growth of the GDR and the structure of a large national merchant fleet required the building of a new, efficient high sea port, which was taken outside of the cultivated city at the Breitling 1960 in enterprise. In addition becameinto warn-flow a new entrance to the Baltic Sea gebaggert. Um an die Bedürfnisse der DDR- und Ostblock-Wirtschaft angepasst zu sein, wurde der Überseehafen ständig aus- und umgebaut und erreichte 1989 mit über zwanzig Millionen Tonnen Umschlag – überwiegend Massenschüttgütern – seinup to then best result. With the German unit began the laborious way, which exclusively on GDR needs laid out port in such a way it umzugestalten that he could find an acceptable place in the ensemble of the German ports. In the past 15 years the transatlantic harbor hasits appearance and its performance therefore strongly change. Due to the modern Ölhafens, the plants for the grain, charring, fertilizer and cement envelope, and the terminal for the export of sugar, wood, scrap iron and bulks he is still universalPlace of transshipment.
Rostock is up-to-date the largest German cruise port, due particularly to the good connection to the area Berlin as a tourist goal and the 2005 opened modern „Cruise center “in warn-flows.
the infrastructure Rostocks is for oneCity with approximately 200,000 inhabitants considerably. The public local passenger traffic (ÖPNV) is served among other things by the rapid-transit railway Rostock as well as by streetcars and penalty of the rust ochers streetcar AG (RSAG). Rostock has 6 strassenbahnlinien, 22 Buslinien and 2Night bus lines. The streetcar net Rostocks is extended since the existence. In the last years nearly each year a streetcar net extension was celebrated. At present has the RSAG a 3-Stufen-Projekt, which is to cause a Verkürzung of the running time in the city center until 2007. Sincethe IGA led in Rostock, when the main station was removed clearly, the streetcar by a tunnel under the main station and concomitantly toward the south. At present one can drive into Rostock on both Warnowseiten with the streetcars.Because of the moorigen area in the north Rostocks lie north still no rails. With the streetcar unattainable goals the Buslinien serve. The next project is a project of the RSAG with the railways Regio AG, until possibly 2010 a metropolitan railway system toorealize, which connects Rostock and its surrounding countryside by a linkage of the streetcar, regional course and rapid-transit railway distances. If the mayor has at present still financial doubts, the RSAG holds nevertheless to the project.
most important station of the city is thatMain station. It was built for 1886 by the architect Karl Korff as Lloyd station at the railroad line Warnemünde Neustrelitz.

culture, sport and objects of interest
Rostock, which was considered as› the bead of the Hanse ‹, have sport at culture, andTo offer objects of interest of some. Many very much stretching buildings, roads, places and public works of art are to be found, particularly in the city center and in warn-flow. For decades first-class sportsmen and sport associations get along also again and again, like the fiber plastic Hansathe Hanseatic city. But like the sport also the culture experiences again and again heights and depths. If the city was once well-known as› the Bayreuth of the north ‹because of its daring he productions, today violently about a theatre new building one argues. But is the universityfor music and theatre architecturally the more interesting and the theatre landscape of the city enriches enormously.
the theatre culture of the city extends farinto the past. As can be prove oldest printed theatre bill of Germany of 1520 originates from Rostock. There was in 19. Century inside primarily moving groups of actors the rust ochers citizens took care of. The play places changed, from the medieval market place over that“Ball house” in 17. to the “Comödienhaus” in 18. Century, before 1786 the old city theatre developed, which by a fire 1880 one destroyed. However 1895 a larger, more beautiful theatre could be inaugurated. In addition, this building was no long lifegranted, it was zerbombt 1942. Since that time the rust ochers must be content with an interim solution converted to the theatre.
The rust ochers theatre history on personalities such as Conrad Ekhof, beautiful man, Hagen or Perten lived, the Rostock to his cultural high point in firstDecades 20. Century led and to the “Bayreuth of the north " made, there particularly the performance by Wagner - operas maintained were. Despite increasing financial and political pressure the theatre is still equipped with a complete dance theatre, concert hall and a play ensemble,those generally speaking house (Doberaner road 134/135), in the theatre in the city port (Warnowufer 65) and in the small comedy warn-flows (rust ocher STR. 8) their being able darbieten. An integral component of the folk theatre is beyond that the north German Philharmonic Concert HallRostock. The A-orchestra is the largest ochestra of the country Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. Regular ones take place concerts not only generally speaking house, but also in the baroque hall and the Nikolaikirche.
Beside the urban folk theatre also the 1991 created free Compagnie de Comédie enrich inthe stage 602 (Warnowufer 55) the rust ochers theatre landscape with musical, play, comedy, concerts and fairy tales. In each play time places the small team, that by the Hanseatic city Rostock, the Ministry for education, science and culture mV, the labour office Rostockand the Social Department mV is promoted, up to 7 new productions on the legs.
Beyond that for nearly 90 years Rostock, which arise in the stage 602 or in the theatre in the city port, with regularly two premieres strengthen the Niederdeut stageper play time and the Jewish theatre “Mechaje” since 1997/1998 the rust ocher culture program.
With the theatre bill of 1520 it acts around an announcement for the celebration in honours of the Medelidinge Marie, which in Rostock always on Sunday afterthat 15. July (in the year 1520 therefore was it the 22. July was celebrated). In order to be able to read the announcement better, here a recopy:

the museum landscapeRostocks is not very rich, however there are some interesting high points. So the arts center Rostock and the culture-historical museums in the monastery to the holy cross and the Kröpeliner gate with a permanent exhibition for rust ochers city attachment. A beyond that important museumare the documentation and memorial place Federal Commissioner for the state security service suppression. Are also very interesting the local history museum warn-flow, shipbuilding and navigation museum on the tradition ship Rostock Schmarl, on special topics also maritime apart from shipbuilding history to visit are and that depot12, the traffic-historical exhibition of the RSAG and the rust ochers of suburban traffic friends.
As highlight the long night of the museums in Rostock, which attracted numerous visitors in the last years, is considered.
the probably most interesting buildings of the citythe gothical brick buildings are from the time around the Hanse. So for example the old attachment plant, from which today still parts are to be visited. So some distances of the Stadtmauer. Particularly in the south with received Wieckhäusern and onePiece of the barrier, establishes by boiling stone around the dreissigjährigen war. Further east in the wall between stone gate, the former main gate and the cow gate, for the oldest building Rostocks at all, also the situation shrub tower stands as the last of fourMilitary towers and also in the east a long piece of wall is in the proximity of the Petrikirche. In the northwest beyond that also still another part of the Fischer bastion with some historical cannons stands. Many gates, which were integrated into the wall, existtoday no more. Some became by the allied bombardment in 2. World war destroyed, others stood plans concerning town construction or to political in the way, like the Petritor or the Schwaan gate. But important gates, like the Kröpeliner gate, and monk gate are stillto always see and were completely reorganized.
Within the Stadtmauern are some impressive churches: The largest is the gothical Marienkirche from that 13. Jh., the moreover one the earlygothical Nikolaikirche, also from that 13. Jh., the pc. Petri church toold market, around which Rostock was originally based, in addition, the university University of (monastery to the holy cross). Outside of the Stadtmauern the holy spirit church in the Kröpeliner gate suburb and the Evangelist church are in warn-flow.
Fewer sakraleBuildings are the gothical city hall from that 13. and 14. Jh. with an later added, baroque front of 1727, the house tree house (lategothical merchants' house), the register office and city archives and the again-gothical condition house. Likewise the lighthouse in warn-flows, which as thatLandmark of this quarter applies. Another interesting building is that university main building at the university place, in addition, numerous memory, like the joke memory or the memory on the memory peninsula in the city port.
Above all Rostock lost important historical buildings by bombardments in the Second World War. Were lost to 40 per cent of the dwelling. In addition, after the war no consideration to the historical built volumes was given. The Jakobikirche, 1942 heavily met, became 1959finally torn off. Today a park reminds of the place, at which it confessed. To the soil calm markings to point among other things the place of the old portals. Also in the Second World War by bombs the Petritor and the Petrikirche were met(to 27. April 1942). While this church remained and it after the reunification 1994 a new polygonal spire was touched down, the Petritor and parts of the Stadtmauer became to 27. May 1960 completely torn off. An association strives today, the meansto make available, in order to develop the gate again.
In addition, the old rust ocher city theatre with the stone gate, only part-destroyed in the war, was torn off. In its place a functional building came, as seat of Baltic Sea pressure and Baltic Sea newspaper (at that time still party organ of the SED, today partSpringer - the publishing house).
1971 were then torn off also the again-gothical, catholic Christ church on the Schröderplatz. To yield however not, as is frequently stated, in order a new traffic organization, but because of a project walter Ulbrichts, in their place, like already inother cities of the GDR to establish to Rostock a large landmark. These structural drawings were however never carried out. The moreover one the neogotische cultivations at the Kröpeliner became gate after the war, which was established around 1840, although intact, torn off.
In addition,some buildings and parts were in former times already lost. 1566 were it a political controversy with duke Johann Albrecht I., which led to an outline of the stone gate and the Stadtmauer up to the cow gate. From the stones it left itself oneAttachment before the city build. 1575-77 however were again developed after the agreement the gate, now in the Netherlands Renaissance style, as well as the wall from the stones of the polished fortress. 1677 were it a large fire, which destroys a third of the city.In addition, storms contributed to a destruction of important building property, like 1718, when above all the historical gothical advice summerhouse at the city hall breaks down. To see it still is on the Vicke Schorler - role. It was replaced then later by a simplebaroque porch 18. Century, that the old gothical looking wall from that 13. Century nearly completely covers.
townscape a large
role played the rust ochers filters the number filters in the rust ocher. There are seven landmarks of the city, the rust ochers Kennewohrn:
just Toern ton of Sint Marien Kark,
seven doorsthe pc. Marien church,
1596 appeared this poem the first time in the chronicle Peter Lindeberg and since in different versions, even by John Brinckman, were delivered. Although today with exception of the seven towers upthe Kennewohrn is not completely received to the city hall of no more, must be assumed the poem with a large measure developed for dichterischer liberty. So were for example twelve buyer bridges at the beach and eight roads, which led from the market.
many regular meetings take place in Rostock. Beside the largest Weihnachtsmarkt in Northern Germany it aligns also each year the Hanse Sail as the high point of the meetings.
In January the Kabarettistenwettbewerb of the rust ochers Koggenzieher findsinstead of, then starting from at the end of March into June the book spring to the Warnow, which offers many readings and exhibitions, to 16.
