Saw the wall on a rainy day as we walked from the tram to the harbor. You can use your imagination to think how it protected the city.

Unfortunately we did not have time to explore the walls but fellow travellers thought it was interesting. So perhaps make time to visit

Rostock is a modern University Town and Old Port. The wall is something you see, and less to "visit". But it flags the pre unification period of Germany not so long ago. Today modern transit passes through the "Gates" of yesterday when Cities were fortified...More

Pretty much what you expect from an ancient city wall. Thick walls with fortified towers. This retains interest because it was not destroyed in the war.

We took the train from the town of Warnemunde (on the coast) and then a tram from the station to arrive at the city square where a market was being held then walk around the city walls. A quiet town with many buildings to photograph.

It is worth while going to see the wall which has been repaired since WWII and you can walk on some sections of it

At the end of the main pedestrian zone of Kropeliner Strasse you'll find the remains of the old medieval city wall. There is a park next to it and it is pleasant walking around this area. Three of the four gates still remain.

If you only have a short time in Rostock, walking along the wall is a pleasant experience. Pick up a map in the big tower at the end of the shopping street. It marks out spots along the wall. You end up in a rose...More
