The European Route of Brick Gothic (EuRoB) is a tourist route connecting cities with Brick Gothic architecture in three countries along the Baltic Sea: Denmark, Germany and Poland.

Many of the cities have also a history as Hanseatic League city, and some are related to German Ostsiedlung or the Teutonic Order, consequently the route is managed by the German Association for Housing, Urban and Spatial Development.

Sites along the route[edit]

The headquarters of the EuRoB organization are located at the "German Association for Housing, Urban and Spatial Development" in Berlin.
