This cathedral built near the city wall is very beautiful and well worth the visit if you are in Rostock, Germany.

The church itself is a pretty quick visit as it is very sparsely populated. The church has been damaged several times, most recently during World War II. The tower is was more recently refinished, and they installed an elevator to reach the top. We took...More

This is an historic church in Rostock, it is kind of plain from the outside and the main church inside is kind of plain as well but the trip up the tower more than makes up for it. It is very tall but there is...More

St Petri's Church is about a 15 minute walk from the main square in the centre of Rostock. There doesn't seem to be any public transport nearer than the square. The church itself is nothing special but the views from the top of the tower...More

This very plain church houses a viewing platform at 44 meters. It's accessed via a lift with a nominal €3 charge. The views from the top are superb and its the only place from which you have uninterrupted views.

The church itself is nothing special, and seen in 10 minutes. But there is a room with pictures, where you can see how it was rebuild after being burned down, quite interesting. Also you can take a lift to the tower with a nice view.
