On the fifth stage, the Hanseatenweg leads you out of Bad Doberan via villages to the Hanseatic city of Rostock.You start in the center of Bad Doberan. Molli, the steam train that runs between Kühlungsborn and Bad Doberan, also drives along here.You drive in a southerly direction and after a few kilometers you reach Althof, where the oldest secular brickwork in Mecklenburg is. Not far to the south is the Althof chapel, which was also built from bricks in the brick Gothic style.Behind Althof you drive on a dirt road through forest sections to the Fischerhof Parkentin. Here you can take a break and try a freshly caught fish from the former monastery ponds.Wherever there are monastery ponds, a church institution is certainly not far away. The village church of Parkentin, which you will pass by after visiting the Fischerhof, is only 1.5 kilometers away. At the village church, go along the main street, then turn right, where you then drive through the area of a building materials recycling company. Here you follow the Hanseatenweg through the villages of Wilsen, Klein Sch Maß and Groß Sch Maß.Once you have crossed the bridge over the B103 and you are in the city of Rostock. You drive past the Westfriedhof through the Barnstorfer Forest, a local recreation area in the southwest of the Hanseatic city.Almost in a straight line you pass an emergency church. The Johanniskirche was only built after the Second World War and is one of the so-called Bartning-Notkirchen. The last kilometers lead you through Rostock to the old town on the Neuer Markt. Here you have reached your fifth stage goal.
