The “Hanseatic and University City of Rostock”—this being the city’s full name—lies directly on the Baltic seaboard, which makes it particularly popular among people of all sorts of life styles. The flair of a major port combines here with the vibrant cultural scene of a tradition-steeped campus town and with the innovation potential of the economically strongest city in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.
Extending over an area of around 180 square kilometres, Rostock will amaze you with its outdoor scenery, rich culture, diverse day-trip destinations and favourite hot-spots in general: Take the Warnow river bank, for instance, the historic city harbour or the seaside resort of Warnemünde which has been part of Rostock since 1323. Just a short trip by bus, car or boat will take you to Warnemünde, a scenic community with the widest sand beach on Germany’s Baltic seaboard, a coastal forest, unspoilt cliffs, a historic lighthouse and a charming boulevard along the old riverbed.
Owner-Occupied Condominium in Rostock – Living in a Popular Historic Town Centre
With all these benefits right at your doorstep, it makes perfect sense that people want to live in Rostock. Not only the city’s roughly 13,700 students feel very much at home here. Thanks to an excellent and family-friendly infrastructure, all generations find it easy to settle down in this Hanseatic city with its high liveability. The historic town centre of the 800-year-old port city is undergoing a renaissance. The Kröpeliner-Tor-Vorstadt district—colloquially abbreviated into “KTV”—has a population of around 19,000 residents. The quarter, which is particularly popular with students, lies to the west of the medieval town core and south of the Unterwarnow section of the river. Its name is borrowed from Kröpeliner Tor, the western city gate of the historic town of Rostock.

Formerly a working class neighbourhood, the district has lately become a hip quarter. The proximity to the campus is reflected in an open-minded, creative atmosphere characterised by many gastronomic and nightlife options. In the years following the German reunification, the quarter was redeveloped at great cost, and taking a walk among the painstakingly restored period buildings, small stores and quirky cafés can be a wonderful way to pass the time. Dwellings in the Kröpeliner-Tor-Vorstadt district are very sought-after because of the centrality of the location and its late-nineteenth century settlement structure. The flats at Ottostrasse 14 are part of this popular up-market and quiet location in the historic town centre. Living here means to be within easy reach of shopping venues, local amenities and everything else you need for living well. It takes barely ten minutes of walking to get to the Unterwarnow river bank, and closer yet are the greenery and playground of Lindenpark, as are schools and preschools. Among the most compelling features of the property on Ottostrasse, aside from its quaint location, are its bright and well-appointed Belle Époque façade and the stairwell with its turned handrails. The two-bedroom flats with their well-considered floor plans offer a bright feel-good ambience on around 42 to 50 square metres.
Rostock’s Hansaviertel quarter, where you will find the residential building of Karl-Marx-Strasse 40 embedded in an area of well-appointed multi-unit dwellings, is located near the Kröpeliner-Tor-Vorstadt district. The Botanical Garden of the University of Rockock is only 500 metres away, and thus more or less in the neighbourhood. The proximity to green areas and sports facilities, the short distances to the nearest retail venues and optimal transport links characterise the Hansaviertel district. Other than that, the quarter with its loose, historically grown settlement structure is defined by pleasant social interaction and a neighbourhood sense of community. The residential building at Karl-Marx-Strasse 40 has a recognisably Hanseatic touch to it with its historic crow-stepped gable and its ornamented façade. A total of seven tenant-occupied 2-bedroom condominiums with dwelling areas between 44 and 64 square metres and one commercial unit on the ground floor are available for sale in this listed property from 1932.
