About the local hosting organizationThe Hanseatic city of Rostock, founded in the 13th century is with 200.000 residents the largest city in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. It sprawls over both sides of the Warnow and enjoys a thriving overseas trade with Scandinavia through its large port facility. It is also a city of great importance where the volunteers will among other things encounter several buildings of historical and cultural value. Due to its proximity to the Baltic Sea and to the river Warnow Rostock is usually crowded with tourists. There are opportunities to organize trips to big German metropolis, like Berlin and Hamburg. Rostock is shaped through the university and the students who create a vivid and modern atmosphere.
