The Rostock city guide association was founded in 1991 and currently holds 49 active members with several professional backgrounds. All our city guides have passed a solid training as guides including final exams. The basis for the training is laid down in the guidelines for training and further education of the Federal Association of Tourist Guides in Germany (BVGD). In addition, 16 of our members are certified according to the guidelines of the BVGD. Guided tours through Rostock are available in the following languages: German, English, French, Spanish,
Russian, Swedish, Bulgarian and our local low German tongue, Mecklenburg Platt. Guided tours throughout the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are available in German, English, and Swedish. The Rostock city guide association offers its members further educational measures at a high level to assure that guides are always up to date. The Rostock city guide association exclusively cooperates with the Tourist Board of Rostock & Warnemünde where guides can be booked for a variety of tours.
