While I'm at it - Johnor made some several more threads about the Baltic Sea region here. About the state's beautiful capital town of Schwerin e.g. Regarding me - I posted some shots of Usedom Island in this thread, one of the most attractive areas over here - To be continued!

Nearly correct, but it'd be rather like "Ich bin ein Nordlicht", which means "I'm a northern light" (synonym for northern German people, as well as "Fischkopp/fishhead" - just take a look at my avatar ).

You could get such a T-shirt rather cheap if you want to design it on your own, at Spreadshirt for example. For this one you can choose a city's name or whatever and it's even less expansive. I own one of the last by the by, with "NB" (for "Neubrandenburg") printed on. You really are quite well received over here with such one

Thanks for the extensive reply! I love the Baltic region, it has to be one of my favourite places on Earth. The people are all so beautiful and open minded as well. The entire of Germany is brilliant actually, I'd love to call Berlin home one day. I've never been so inspired by a city before.

I'll have to check out those other threads now...

And I really love these little Strandkörben, they're a really great idea, quite romantic in a way. I'd give anything to be in Germany right now...

Nice pics, and I'll repeat what others have said: It looks like it could be a Dutch or Danish city.

Thank you for your compliment.
I think that the architechtural form that exists in Rostock actually came from Lübeck and was then exported (to the hanseatic cities of europe). In this sense it lies on the lack of stone to build and therefore dependent on brickstone. Just to illustrate what I mean I will present a gallery of Lübeck, the definer of the hanseatic architechture.

I do like the look of Melbourne very much. It sure does have an impressive skyline!

In how far is Melbournes' skyline related to Rostock?

Right, the ex-DDR is my favourite part of Germany, as well as in Poland the western part (west from the Warta (Warthe) and Odra (Oder) rivers. I love the old German buildings built of red brick and the timbered walls...

Totally agree. During summer, when the weather is nice, german beach resorts are just as good as any Australian beach.

I kind of agree, some of the best preserved cities and towns are in east germany. Some of them rival the ones in southern germany.

Nice, I expected a gray industrial/port city. Didn't think there were still so many historic buildings left: were they not destroyed during the war or were they rebuilt ?

It is funny, not all cities and towns were completely destroyed in the second world war.

In the northern state of Schleswig Holstein and Mecklenburg-vorpommern only Kiel and Neubrandenburg from the larger towns was completely destroyed. Lübeck and Rostock was 20 percent and 30 percent destroyed. Cities like Flensburg, Schwerin, Schleswig, Wismar and so on still breath a lot of old world charm.

Great photos again Johan, thanks a lot! Do you consider visiting Mecklenburg-Vorpommern again in the near future (in summer perhaps)?

Indeed. It's the one with the red roof in the middle of that pic, finished renovation just 2 months ago

I was last year in Fischland-Darss. Since I maybe will move from Germany soon I will try to make a tour of Germany this summer. Maybe a short trip to Warnemünde by Rostock would be nice.
