A fantastic place to visit. One of the only places that is left from before the war - the only church out of the 3 in Germany. If you come from the port you can have guided tours in English.

Rest your bags and coats and enjoy an hour here to capture the beauties of Rostock's largest church dating back to 1230 wit its rich furnishings to include the astronomical clock, apostle procession (1472) together with the bronze baptismal font (1290)

This church is worth a visit if only to see the astrological clock and the gravestones with names of the deceased crossed out when they are re-used!
