The Abbey of the Holy Cross (German: Kloster zum Heiligen Kreuz) in Rostock was founded in the 13th century by Cistercian nuns. It is the only fully preserved abbey in the city. The complex includes the former abbey church which is used today as the University Church (Universitätskirche). The remaining abbey buildings house the Museum of Cultural History (Kulturhistorische Museum) for the city of Rostock.
