The main attraction of Schwerin this beautiful castle is well worth visiting. The grounds are very prettily planted and the unusual mix of architectural facades makes for a fairytale Disney-esque aesthetic, fit to please any romantic. The state rooms are well maintained and offer an insight into the original usage of the building.

The city of Schwerin is absolutely beautiful with a magnificent castle on the coast of Schwerin Lake. The castle is full of art and artifacts and situated among fabulous gardens, sculptures and fountains. The town is quaint, clean and has many interesting shops and restaurants. This is a most pleasant place to spend a day touring and learning the history... More

The city was a big pleasant surprise. It was very clean, very well-maintained, quaint German town. There were a lot of shops, many cute restaurants, cobblestone streets and other attractions. Also there are a lot of natural landscapes to enjoy. The castle was immense and very well-maintained. The outside looks like a castle the inside looks more like a palace.... More

Impressive castle right in the middle of Schwering. Lovely gardens great for pictures or just to sit and relax. The gardens are free access. There is also cute cafe in the gardens at the back of the castle which is very pleasant.

This is a lovely castle (actually more of a palace) in a gorgeous setting but we felt for the price the tour was rather expensive since the tour is limited. I believe the ticket also gives you admittance to the art museum but if you are not into art or don't have the time the ticket price for one castle... More

We had about 3 hours to spend in Schwerin and decided to visit the castle and little else. Very impressive on the outside and beautifully set in the Schwerin lake. Lots of photo opportunities walking around the castle from the outside. On the inside most impressive were the state rooms of the duke. I think we should've taken an audio... More

From Rostock to Schwerin takes about an hour on the train where we visited the breathtaking castle and lake, market square, government building, Schweriner Dom (Roman Catholic cathedral constructed in 1249). We had a coffee and sweet at a cafe in the market square and for lunch we had “Sunday roast” at a lake-side restaurant before a visit to the... More

We went for the day to Schwerin as I wanted to visit the castle, and it was beautiful! We wanted to take a tour inside, and were greeted by a very rude man (very unlike German hospitality!). The cost is 6 Euro's per adult, or 10 Euro's for a family. We were 2 adults and were charged 12 Euro's -... More
