Photographer's Note

These six gabled houses – Neuer Markt 11 through 16 – were constructed from the Middle Ages through the 19th century. They were rebuilt after being heavily damaged during WWII. The most interesting building along the New Market is Rats Apotheke at Neuer Markt 13. This Town Hall Pharmacy originated in 1260. Back then, the Neuer Markt was also the location of a pillory. Its wooden frame secured a criminal’s head and hands during public humiliation.

In the back can see St. Mary’s Church which became Rostock’s main church when its first phase was completed in 1279. Marienkirche was expanded in 1290, 1398 and 1454. Although it was hit during the WWII Allied bombings, it is the only town church not heavily destroyed by fire so inside are numerous, centuries-old adornments. Thanks to a significant effort by the Lutheran Diocese of Mecklenburg, this Gothic brick church was undergoing an extensive renovation which was completed in 2018.
