We were in Rostock (2 euros each to get to by train and tram from Warnemunde where our cruise ship docked!!) so went into the church to see the astronomical clock - this was beautiful. The church interior was lovely - the bits we could see, but quite a lot of it is under reconstruction... I'd still recommend visiting despite... More

Big parts of the church was under reconstruction so it was hard to se the great room. The organ is impressive and beautiful. I like the white interior since it makes the room look bigger.

We visited this church whilst on a cruise and stopped in Warnemunde. The guide took us inside and showed us around. During her tousr we stopped at the Astronomical Clock and proceeded to tell us about its workings: Top: Apostle-go-round giving an hourly performance of the apostles crossing before Jesus for a blessing before entry into eternal bliss, and the...

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.
