Eastern old town
The oldest town quarter in Rostock is located to the east of the town hall, framed by the Middle-Age city wall and the imposing brick churches of St. Petri and St. Nikolai. The old town is on very hilly terrain, with many narrow streets and cobblestones. The direct path from the city centre is not wheelchair accessible, due to the nature of the streets and the inclines. As an alternative, access by car to the Petrikirche is recommended (disabled parking spaces are available).
Petrikirche viewing tower
An elevator leads to the wheelchair-accessible viewing platform, which is 44m high. The access way leads to the South Portal, which is at ground level (please report to the main portal for assistance from the church staff).

The area, with the sailing port, along the Unterwarnow estuary is popular for walking and admiring the views. Because of the slopes coming from the city centre, routes via Krämerstraße and Grubenstraße, the “Grünen Tor” street or direct access by car are recommended. Please note: in the city harbour area, there are currently no disabled toilets.
