We visited here in early August of 2019 and walked along the city for some distance. There are some nice views of the city outside the walls and it is fascinating to see the city's old defenses.

Just a word of warning, while the Historical Society advertises for $5 Euro, its an unreliable service. We waited last Sunday for the 11am tour, no one showed up

We only spent a short time viewing this wall and we saw where the soldiers would keep guard. Unfortunate for anyone daring to do the wrong thing in times past.

As you walk along town in Rostock it is easy to add on the City Wall to your tour. They are beautifully maintained and full of history. Our Viator tour was done using SBP Tours and our guide Andreas was excellent.

The section of wall that we saw was close to the Kröpeliner Tor. You can imagine what it must have looked like all connected and protecting the city. There is a good portion of the wall built in the 13th century still standing.

Saw the wall on a rainy day as we walked from the tram to the harbor. You can use your imagination to think how it protected the city.
