All packed.


Got everything I need. I travel light.

Here is the monument to the sailors’ revolt.


November 1918, red sailors hoisted over their ships the flag of the revolution (rough translation).

The Rostock weihnachtsmarkt.


In front of the town hall.

Here’s the site of the Rostock pogroms.


In August 1992, hundreds of neo-nazi thugs attacked this building, which housed mainly asylum seekers from Romania. I didn’t see any monument here, no edifice to honour the victims of fascism. Maybe they want to forget.

Here’s Warnemünde youth hostel.


Not sure what the ball on the top on the tower does. Radio antenna?

I like Rostock. It feels like the sort of place where I could happily live.
