Pölchow is a municipality in the Rostock district, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. The commune is administered by the Amt Warnow-West, which is located in the municipality of Kritzmow.

The districts Huckstorf and Wahrstorf belong to Pölchow.

The proximity to Rostock and the good traffic connection (Baltic Sea motorway A 20) let the municipality grow strongly in the last years. In addition to the numerous homes that have been built, a number of commercial enterprises have also settled in the town.

Geography[edit]

The municipality of Pölchow is about ten kilometres south of the Rostock city centre. The area around the municipality is about 40 m higher than the valley of the lower Warnow, which has been designated a landscape conservation area east of Pölchow.
