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

This church has the biggest organ in northern Germany. The church is very tall and the stained glass windows are fabulous.

This brick built church was originally constructed in the 13th century but underwent modifications over the next 200 years. Set in a small square it is attractive both outside and in. Many of the features within the church are very old, the high altar which is painted wood, a side altar which is carved wood and a 13th century brass... More

Good example of architecture in this part of the world. Nice organ and some memorials to remember the awful war. The most impressive element is the astronomical watch. There is a resonable and voluntary fee to keep the church in good condition

We were doing a Baltic Cruise and were visiting Rostock from Warnemunde as part of a do it yourself outing. We came across this church by chance, though it's hard to miss because of its size and location. It is impressive with this unique clock inside. Like many visitors there, we were not accompanied by a guide so had to... More

This is a huge church, but the main draw card is the clock. If you're with a guide they can explain the workings of the clock, but as we were doing our own thing, we basically just listened to an English speaking tour guide who happened to be there at the same time. A highlight considering how old the clock... More

We visited this church as part of a tour, and were most impressed. Very ornate inside, a gigantic organ with I believe some 5000 pipes (!), fine carvings and a wonderful astronomical clock are just a few of the arresting sights inside.

We travelled here by train from Warnemunde.The cathedral does not look anything special from the outside, but it does have some gems inside. It is not majestic from the outside like many European cathedrals, and it does look a bit dull from the outside, being brick built rather than stone. But it does have some gems inside. The pipe organ... More

I travelled here by train when my cruise ship stopped in Warnemude. (The purpose of the stop was to allow passengers to travel to Berlin, but stince we'd already been there, we chose to stay local.) Rostock was pleasant to walk around in, and see. The rathaus was elaborate and the church was a sight to see, but nothing really... More
