Nice to walk by this part of the original city. Shame that so much has been lost, but nevertheless we found Rostock to be a really charming and interesting place to spend most of a day exploring. The modern blends in well with so much...More

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.

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.

Pretty much what you expect from an ancient city wall. Thick walls with fortified towers. This retains interest because it was not destroyed in the war.

We took the train from the town of Warnemunde (on the coast) and then a tram from the station to arrive at the city square where a market was being held then walk around the city walls. A quiet town with many buildings to photograph.
