“Be there at noon for the astronomical clock”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

We came here from our cruise ship in Warnemunde - it is a short train ride to Rostock - and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the interior of this 13th century cathedral. The astronomical clock, dated to 1472, is not to be missed. People gather shortly before noon for the display of Jesus and his Apostles coming out and circling into another door, all that is except Judas who has the door slammed in his face.
