St. Mary’s Church (“St. Marien”), first mentioned in 1298, was once considered the tallest building in the world. A masterpiece of late Brick Gothic architecture and the largest parish church in Stralsund, it contains the altar of the Coronation of the Virgin Mary as well as the baroque Stellwagen organ. From its tower you have a panoramic view over the Hanseatic city as far as the island of Rügen.
