University square, university building and library, Rostock

This Rostock University building is extravagant with its white red façade. It is richly decorated with sculptures, drawings and statues. The front entrance is very impressive and it is a privilege to study in this 600 year old building. Albert Einstein received here his first honour doctorate in 1919. In front of the entrance there is a park with a spectacular fountain. At the fountain, you have the square with rows of coloured houses and super mansion. The library is in a gothic style with very special arches and bricks. A typical architecture of Rostock.

Het Rostock universiteitsgebouw is extravagant met zijn rood witte gevels. Deze zijn rijk gedecoreerd met beeldhouwerken, standbeelden en tekeningen. De hoofdingang is zeer indrukwekkend en het is een voorrecht in dit 600 jaar oude gebouw te mogen studeren. Het was hier in 1919 dat Albert Einstein zijn eerste ere doctoraat in ontvangst mocht nemen. Aan de voorkant ligt een park met een spectaculaire fontein. Aan de fontein is een pleintje met gekleurde huizen die alle op rij staan naast super herenhuizen. De bibliotheek is gebouwd in een gotische stijl met booggewelven en stenen die enkel in deze stad voorkomen..

  5. This is a highly unusual building with the white. What are those things in front of the statue that look like strings? I love the row of colorful buildings.

  8. How fascinating to think that Albert Einstein received his first doctorate from this place. do you know that there is a boy, perhaps about 11 or 12, who is working on disproving some of Einsteins theories, and people believe that he has nearly achieved that. Can't remember the boys name, but he fills walls and windows with his equations. He is now at university where he has his own research program ( no one is smart enough to teach him) What amazing things the mind can achieve.

  9. gelukkig zijn deze mooie gebouwen behouden gebleven in de toenmalige DDR. Ze hebben deze na de vereniging mooi opgeknapt. Het is de moeite om te gaan kijken
