Great place to walk and relax! Very beautiful castle from inside, also with a very beautiful garden. Why 3? because, I couldn't take pictures inside of castle! If you want to, you have to pay 2 or 3 EUR in each pic!

Fairytale castle that is the equal of the better known Neuschwanstein. Spectacular setting on a lake with lovely grounds. The cafe is a pleasant place to have a coffee, we sat outside as it was a perfect day. The interiors are worth seeing as well.

Wonderful place with lovely walk and also great to visit inside. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is because one has to pay some 11 EUR at the entrance and for this money you are not allowed to take a picture, not even with an iPhone ! This is something unusual in Germany or WW where they even... More

A castle situated on an island in a lake, romantic grounds and a great place to relax. The castle consists of several parts from different periods and is beautiful inside out. You can easily spend a few hours exploring and if you fancy to stroll a little further afield off the garden grounds you will discover an old mill hidden... More

A very beautiful attraction but with a very high price in relevance to other attractions (f.e in Lubeck) which have much more to show. Also, it worths to be seen by people attracted by fine arts, as there are many portairts of imperators and imperatrices. At least 1.5-2 hours needed to observe each item. Two floors to be seen. Yet,... More

I only had a short time in Schwerin, so just went for a walk in the gardens around the castle. It's an impressive building, and looks great in its setting next to the lake. The gardens were well cared for, even in late December, and it was a very enjoyable place to visit. If I had more time I would... More

The castle is quite beautiful and the location is stunning: on a lake. Too bad that the town is ugly, but the castle is worth seeing. Even during the winter is nice.

This beautiful castle is certainly worth a visit. Set on an island in the town centre, this is one of the most imposing and beautiful castles you can imagine. We visited on a very cold winters day so we didn't go around the gardens but heard straight inside. The six euro fee is worth every cent. The display panels are... More

We only took a walk around the Castle in the Garden. It is very nice from the outside, place on the small Island in the lake, and the garden surrounding the Castle is very beautiful and interesting.
