Information for media represantatives

It´s not neccessary, but we would reccomend you to do it: Before you get into the craziness of the Hanse Sail, you are welcome to come to the press office at the city port. There, you will receive the most recent information about the 29th Hanse Sail. We will answer your questions, give contact persons and help with directions. Furthermore, you can get an accreditation at the press office or journalists, who have already been accredited, can pick up their press cards.

8th - 11th August 2019: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Trip with the press boat
At the Hanse Sail, we enable some media represantatives to get on board on a press boat on Saturday, 10th August 2019 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in order to take pictures or videos of the events on the water. The trip will take place on the “Munster” and will start at the naval base “Hohe Düne”. For that, we levy a participation fee. We ask for your understanding that the spots are limited and we might not be able to offer a spot to everyone. Further information will be provided soon.

We would reccomend to arrive via public transport. Everyone, who is using a car, should use the parking lots and car parks inside or at the edge of the city center. Then, you can use the bus, tram or city train to the city port, to Marienehe or to Warnemünde. The Rostocker Straßenbahn AG (RSAG) offers a day ticket (6,00 Euros), which you can use in the entire city area as well as on the Warnow ferries.
From the central train station you can use the tram lines 5 and 6 in the direction of the city center.
From the central station with the city train to Warnemünde (last stop)
From the central train station to Marienehe with the city train in the direction of Warnemünde or with the tram line 5. From the city center also with the tram line 1, then follow the signs by foot. With the car from the city center in the direction of Warnemünde, turn right at the Hamburger Straße into the Carl-Hopp-Straße, follow the main street until the street “Am Fischereihafen”; turn right on the corner Lidl / KSM Servicetechnik and drive to the head of the pier.
