What is the international Hanseatic Day?

The annual event is based on a long tradition. Already in the Middle Ages the members of the Hanseatic League met regularly to agree on their joint action. With the International Hansetag, the Hanseatic League of the modern era revived this custom. Every year a different Hansestadt invites you to exchange ideas and experiences, to celebrate and to get to know each other.

Why does the Hansetag take place in Rostock in 2018?

Already at the Hansetag 1996 in Bergen, Rostock made the request to become the organizer of the festival in 2018 – on the occasion of the 800th city birthday – and was awarded the contract.
