I found that the church had closed 90 minutes earlier than its posted hours on the evening when I first went to see it, so I had to return in the morning. I'm glad I did: while much of the interior was gutted from war damage, it has been restored to an extent and boasts an extraordinary organ, a remarkably... More

This place has it all. But if you want to use your tripod, make sure to speak to someone and ask for permission. It isn't usually a problem, but asking makes you earn points, by showing your respects for the sacred place

We were on a Baltic cruise docked in Warnemunde and took the ~20 minute cab ride to Rostock--this cathedral definitely made it worth it. The stained glass, enormous organ, and altar are all breathtaking. There are printed guides in several languages that are extremely helpful so you can get the most out of being there. The astronomical clock is incredible,... More

Marienkirche is "old" - meaning rebuild in the 50's to the 70's - but it is still worth a visit. Especially theb tower which gives a fantastic view over the city.

Built in the 13th century, this church was originally a monastery. Great piece of history. Take the time to explore.

I don't know what I can add to these great reviews other than GREAT PHOTO OP! When we went it was fairly crowded, so it was hard to get a decent photo of the astrological clock -- one of the main attractions. That said, there are definitely plenty of other interesting things to look at, including a 26-meter tall stain... More

This church has so much to see other than just the terrific Architecture. The huge Organ, the amazing Stain Glass displays and the Astronomicial Clock. We visited the church as a part of a tour when visiting Warnemunde on a Baltic Cruise. Would recommend a vitit to Rostoc to see this church and the many other sights Rostock has to... More

Not much to dislike about the interior of this church. The organ is beyond belief as is the carving icons of the central altar and the astronomical clock. A must see in Rostock.
