We took the train from Warnemunde to Rostock, from where we changed trains for Schwerin. With our day passes booked online it was really simple and economical. Schwerin town is itself very pretty with lakes and cobbled streets and pretty shops. But the highlight is the Schloss. Its an easy walk from the train station and the Schloss is very... More

We came here as part of an excursion from Warnemunde (a port on a Baltic Cruise). We decided a six hour ride to Berlin was not for us so we came here instead. Big mistake. The castle was under a lot of construction. You could not take a picture without having a huge modern crane or scaffolding in the frame.... More

Enjoy the beautiful gardens and lakeside views around the castle before venturing inside. We marveled at the magnificent Thorn Room, library and other beautiful rooms filled with unique woodworks, exquisite carvings and beautifully decorated inlays. Just a short walk to the town square where there a many good quality cafés.

The lake and castle and gardens are lovely to look at. The inside of the castle was nothing special but still worth the visit if you are in the port area and don't want to go to Berlin.

Beautiful Schloss which looks great on all sides. Really well kept both inside and out. The tour inside is busy but as long as you hang back from the bus trips you get to see everything. The throne room is wonderful. The gardens are large and a joy just to wonder around. The building is wonderful but the setting on... More
