Marienkirche, dating from 1230, is an impressive gothic structure, filled with furnishings and art from many centuries. Of special interest is the astronomical clock from 1472. Crowds of tourists wait patiently to see it in action. We were here midday and joined the crowds to watch the "show". During our recent visit, there was lots of scaffolding and several areas blocked off, due to renovation. However, there was plenty to see throughout and more than enough quiet space for contemplation.

Saint Mary’s Church in Rostock is simply spectacular and a MUST see. Every visit that I’ve made has been met by slight disappointments – scaffolding or plywood barriers limiting access to one or more of the treasures inside. But – that’s a good thing, and a guarantee that these treasurers will be preserved for successive generations. The magnificent structure started out Catholic, transitioned to Protestant and survived (somehow) a half century of communist control.
