Buying a Condominium in Rostock – Seaside Living
Welcome to Rostock – the Hanseatic seaside city in the sun! Living here, directly on the Baltic seaboard, you will immerse yourself in a rich maritime way of life, surrounded by splendid brick architecture, historic townhouses and medieval city gates. In addition to the impressive Brick Gothic art, Rostock will amaze you with its colourful cultural scene, which includes theatres, museums and festivals as well as leisure amenities on and out of the water.
Indeed, the “Hanseatic and University City of Rostock,” as it calls itself, combines the advantages of a major city with the charm of a seaside resort. The Baltic Sea resort town of Warnemünde is one of the northern districts of the Hanseatic City of Rostock and home to the city’s port, creating a holiday ambience any time of year with its broad beachfront promenade. Impressive edifices from the days of the Hanseatic League include the historic warehouses at the eastern end of the city’s port which today doubles as prestigious setting for corporate headquarters and events. The western part of the city harbour features a diversified gastronomic and cultural landscape whose theatres, music and art appeals equally to locals, new arrivals and tourists. The promenade is, of course, the perfect place for strolling and breathing some ocean air.
Condominium in Rostock as Income-Producing Property in a Popular Historic Town Centre
The apartment building at Ottostrasse 14 is located right in the historic town centre with its brick churches, narrow lanes, gabled houses and near the Abbey of the Holy Cross. The popular historic location is part of the Kröpeliner-Tor-Vorstadt district, home to around 19,000 residents.
A short walk along the well-groomed townhouses will take you to the centre of the city, the riverside promenade with its restaurants and bars as well as to the greenery of Lindenpark. The lifeline of this district is Kröpeliner Strasse, a high street great for browsing, shopping and eating out. Formerly a working class district, the area is now a trendy quarter and, given its proximity to the university, a sought-after residential location with an open-minded atmosphere. Among the most compelling features of the listed property on Ottostrasse, aside from its sought-after location, are the bright and well-appointed Belle Époque façade and the stairwell with its turned handrails. On footprints of 42 to 50 square metres, the tenant occupied two-bedroom flats with their nifty floor plans radiate a feel-good ambience that is ideal for a younger target group.
