Why locals love it

The Petrikirche is the embodiment of a Northern German church: plain and modest from both inside and outside, the Gothic brickstone church from the 14th century is a good place to spend some moments in silence, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The church also hosts the Protestant student congregation of Rostock.

Why you should visit it

The most interesting thing for tourists is probably not the church itself but the view you get from the church tower. On a good day, you can see Warnemünde from the almost 120 metres high tower. Furthermore, there is a memorial for the Protestant reformer Martin Slüter behind the church where the historic city walls start.

Special tip

A climb up to the tower costs 3€ (2€ concessions), but the view is worth it (if it's not foggy).
