Explore Rostock

There are a number of interesting historical buildings here in Rostock, such as the 117m tall steepled Petri Church, constructed in 1994. Tourists are able to climb the steeple from inside if they wish. Marien Church features an astronomical clock, dating from the 15th century. Also impressive are the Rochus altar, the pulpit, the high altar and the noblemen's box, with the organ above it.

The Holy Cross Cloister is a heritage and historical museum which features a comprehensive collection of Dutch paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries. It offers a great deal of information about the development of the city, and has a continually changing programme of special exhibitions. The Town Hall dates from the 13th century but the Baroque frontage and the reception hall were completed in the mid-18th century.

The sturdy Kuhtor is the oldest tower gate in northern Germany. The Kroepeliner Tor at the end of the pedestrian zone is a breathtaking Gothic structure. Today, the 54-metre high tower serves as a museum. Other attractions in the town include: the Seafaring Museum, which includes maritime coinage and models; Zoo Rostock, which houses 2,000 species from across the globe; and the Botanical Garden, which covers eight hectares. Rostock's most photographed street, Kröpeliner-Strasse, a pedestrians-only walkway, is lined with shops.

Many tourists flock to the nearby Warnemuende, which has, over the years, developed from a tiny fishing village into a fine Baltic coastal resort. Here, the 500-metre long Westmole and the Marine Promenade, with its lighthouse, attract many tourists. There are lots of small shops and quaint bars among the gabled houses in the Alten Strom. The Heritage Museum is situated in one of the half-timbered houses. Also of interest is the Warnemuende lighthouse, which was built in 1897. A pleasant drive is to Stralsund, 72km away on the E22, and by opting for car hire in Rostock tourists can visit all the curious seafront towns along the way.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
