Whilst our cruise ship was docked in the port of Rostock, for the day, we had taken a guided tour to Wismar. After visiting the old town square, our tour guide led us to this church, to take a look inside. Some of the war time damage to the church was obvious from the outside. Most of the windows were glazed with plain glass rather than the original stained glass. When we went inside, we saw that most of the interior was empty. There were some small displays relating to the history of the church and also some church pews. Our tour guide did not provide us with the opportunity to visit the roof lookout area of the church. Instead, we just had to make do with viewing the vast, mainly empty interior and the splendid architecture of the church’s exterior. Worthy viewing by any tourist who happens to be spending time in Wismar!…

The main attraction of this church was the view from the tower, which was really impressive on a clear day and made me realise how much smaller Wismar is than it may seem! The church itself is basically a shell, but worth a visit for the tower.

The Church of St George. Also badly damaged during the war, it was partially rebuilt and now can be visited though featuring a mostly empty interior.

The church ifself is empty. The church tower is not very tall, beside part of the church covers one side of a view. But you could see the harbour and it is quite nice.

This church has only been reconstructed (after wartime damage) quite recently. It is quite empty and almost stark. This adds to its beauty - and highlights quite how many bricks must have been used. We did not go up the tower but I expect the views must be good
