The expansion of Dierkow-Ost began in the late 1920s. On generously zoned parcels that were meant to ensure self-sufficiency by letting you grow your own fruit and vegetables or even keep small livestock, detached and semi-detached homes were raised, mostly built of brick but also in the style of northern German period buildings. Today, Dierkow-Ost is a booming urban district of the Hanseatic city and campus town of Rostock on the Baltic Sea.
The sought-after hilltop location of Dierkower Höhe in the east end of Rostock is known not only within the state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania for its lovely sea view but also for the robust Nordic architecture of its period buildings from the Belle Époque. Petridamm, one of the main arteries and one of the most frequented cycle routes in Rostock, directly passes the nature reserve of Riekdahler Wiese. Inspired by environmental awareness, not just the network of bicycle trails but Dierkow-Ost in general is being groomed for the federal horticultural show BUGA 2025, together with the opposite bank of the River Warnow and the historic city port.
Leisure and sports facilities as well as the attractively landscaped green areas will upgrade the district and enhance its liveability. Add to this the healthy seaside climate with its fresh air and many leisure options: Along the bank of the Warnow you can go fishing, kite-surfing, wind-surfing, rowing, sailing and swimming at the river lido.
