I will say that when touring Europe after awhile one cathedral begins to look like the last and it is hard to remember one from the other. However, this is truly a magnificent cathedral and not only for its grandeur , but also for the...More

Go in at any time of the day to visit this lovely old church but try to get there at noon so that you can see the astronomical clock from 1472 chiming. Its the highlight of the visit.

The church is quite close to the Neuer Markt and is a landmark site. It was under renovation while we passed it and we did not go in.

This Church is really beautiful, and there is so many details to enjoy. The church organ is gigantic and really worth seeing. This is for sure the church to visit in Rostock
