Hanse Sail Rostock is among the world’s largest gatherings of traditional sailing ships and museum ships. The maritime folk festival has been held on the second weekend in August since 1991. About 200 participating ships together with cruise liners, ferries and naval ships provide a lively maritime world exhibition.
A moving event for a majority of visitors is to experience sailing first-hand on one of the traditional seafaring ships. But the old time sailing vessels can also be admired from the edges of quays or from an open ship.
