Rostock’s district of Brinckmansdorf, which will celebrate its centennial in 2021, looks back on a history as former garden city of agricultural character while also reflecting the city’s former wealth as a member of the Hanseatic League and its prosperity during the Belle Époque. War damage was very limited in this part of the booming metropolis on the Baltic seaboard in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, so that the popular district boasts a handsomely restored stock of period buildings.
Brinckmansdorf, a former garden city with a much older tradition, is named after John Brinckman, a poet of Lower German, and is defined by short distances to every amenity you need for day-to-day living: shopping venues, an excellent infrastructure and convenient access to local and long-haul transportation.
Engage in Aquatics on the Local River Warnow
Moreover, Rostock-Brinckmansdorf has always been highly popular among aquatics enthusiasts. Aside from the traditional fishing and yacht clubs, a special event that is celebrated here annually is Hanse Sail, one of the most renowned maritime fairs in Europe. Rostock’s river lido, replenished by the water of the River Warnow that also provides drinking water to half of the state’s population, lies within walking distance. In 2025, Rockock will host the federal horticultural show BUGA. Its fairgrounds will be grouped around a pedestrian and bicycle bridge across the river. The close proximity to the BUGA grounds has turned Brinckmansdorf into an exclusive residential area where many new properties are currently under development. At the same time, attractive new green areas are being created.
Come to Rostock-Brinckmansdorf to let a fresh sea breeze tousle your hair, to have some fine seafood in the historic port of Rostock and to watch vessels large and small pass by, just like John Brinckman, the local writer after which the district is named.
