The astronomical clock makes this church a most place to visit in Rostock. It is not as beautiful as the one in Prague but still very interesting. You must be there at noon to see it chiming.

This was the only church we visited in Rostock and it is worth going in to as centrally located just off Neuer Markt. We visited firstly around 1000 and returned for the midday movement of the apostles and the chiming of the atronomical clock. The...More

Go in at any time of the day to visit this lovely old church but try to get there at noon so that you can see the astronomical clock from 1472 chiming. Its the highlight of the visit.

The church is quite close to the Neuer Markt and is a landmark site. It was under renovation while we passed it and we did not go in.

This Church is really beautiful, and there is so many details to enjoy. The church organ is gigantic and really worth seeing. This is for sure the church to visit in Rostock

Typical North German Brick Gothic church, which hasn’t changed much since the 14th century but which contains an amazing astronomical clock. Well worth seeing just for the clock!

Located in St. Mary's Church is the Medieval Clock and just under it (1 of 2 left in the world) the Astronomical Clock. Built in 1472 it is a mind stretching feat of engineering. The apostles go around hourly with Judas being last and being...More

This is a nice church with free street parking nearby. The top reason to visit is most definitely the astronomical clock located on the far end of the building. We visited on our own, but we were fortunate to be able to listen in on...More
