The city offers a wide variety of cultural activities: at the Schwerin State Museum, art lovers will find modern art alongside an exquisite collection of Dutch and Flemish works from the so-called "Golden Age".
Get ready to fall in love with the breathtaking view of the beautiful Schweriner Lake, the fourth biggest in Germany. Another 11 lakes mark the landscape of the city and surround the fairytale-like Schwerin castle which, for centuries, was home to the dukes and grand dukes of Mecklenburg.
