St. Mary's Church (German: Marienkirche) is a large Lutheran church located in Stralsund, northern Germany.[1]

Built some time before 1298, it is architecturally Gothic, an example of the brick gothic style prevalent in northern Germany. Between 1625 and 1647, it was the tallest building in the world at Script error: No such module "convert". tall.

The bell tower collapsed in 1382, and was rebuilt by 1478. In 1495, the steeple tower blew down during a severe storm, and was then rebuilt taller. This was subsequently struck by lightning in 1647, and burned down, and was rebuilt as a baroque dome, which, completed in 1708, can be seen today. The tower is currently Script error: No such module "convert". tall.
