A massive church in the middle of the old town of Stralsund. Interesting architecture and when we where there they had a very interesting photo exhibition about WW2. No entrance fee.

We did all the climbing which is on the edge of adventurous but great fun. And than the view: worth all the climbing and even beyond! If you are sportive: a definitive must go!

It was nice to see this wonderful building from the outside (first of all having coffee in the square), inside and from the viewing area. The view is 360 degrees and you see the bridge to Rugen Island, the old buildings in the town itself...More

Nothing much to see inside. Quite empty and few decorations. Some arts displays directly after the entrance and it is possible against a fee to climb the tower. Worth a quick visit.

You can not miss this church when you are in Greifswald. In particular it is very wide. Another feature is the red brick, which seems to be special for this region: the brick gothic.

Fantastic and tall, this church dedicated to St. Mary had some reconstruction going on inside but not so much that you'd really be bothered by it. One of the most impressive examples of German gothic churches and amazing that it has survived so many wars....More

You don't have to be religious to appreciate the architecture and ornamentation of churches. Nearly 50 years of communist rule and yet such beauty survived. Climb the tower, it brings memories of the final scenes in 'The name of the rose.' Despite the seemingly endless...More

This is one if the tallest vaulted ceilings we've seen. The alters are stunning and it certainly reflects the grandeur that 14th C Stralsund must had at that time.
