The Kirche itself inside and out is a beautiful building. When we visited it is under renovation and scaffolding inside and out. It is free for tourists who wish to wonder around the ground level, but for a tour with the organist on the upper...More

The church is having old architecture design. The main attraction is the huge clock, it's worth watching. Never seen one like this before. Must see if you are in Rostock.

We visited the Church on a Sunday, when not a lot of other things are open. It was well worth a visit, a beautiful historic place.

We visited this church and were surprised at the works inside. It was apparently not badly damaged during the war and contains an old astronomical clock installed in 1472. Also listened to some beautiful music as the organist practised for a service - very spiritual.

If you want to see that amazing astronomical clock, you have to be there on the hour, then you can see apostle-go-round which was designed and built hundreds of years ago.

The main reason for visiting was to see the Astronomical Clock, but the church is worth visiting anyway. There are some very interesting features elsewhere in the church. The clock was very impressive. We didn't worry too much about how it worked, it was interesting...More
