I went to the museum to specifically see the David Teniers, Breughel and Rubens and Franz von Stuck paintings. Absolutely a must see and would have been better if seen before the castle. Both in a day was exhausting and wonderful.

The museum is a part of few monuments you can visit with a combine ticket. Good quality of art and a modern wing. Put attention to the opening hours ( summer & winter )

The old city has been preserved and renovated over the last twenty years or so and the museum is both fascinating and full of amazing information about the land of my forefathers.

visited the Stolen Art exhibition. Well presented and excellent headphone-translation. The building in itself is interesting architecture.

I didn't expect to find such a good collection outside a city, but the collection includes items owned by the wealthy former rulers of the area, who lived in Schwerin Castle and had some very beautiful paintings, furniture and objects. The special exhibition which was on when I was there (at extra cost) was not enormous but I was impressed... More

About 30 miles east of Ratzeburg, if you are in the area try to visit the castle. It is located in what used to be East Germany. The castle was badly damaged during the war but is undergoing repairs. Do not let this put you off, it is a massive castle and the restorations have been carried out to great... More

The museum is OK but the art gallery is absolutely outstanding. Quite simply one of the best provincial galleries I have ever visited. Whether your tastes are modern of classical, you'll find something to enjoy here.

A great collection of both modern and classical art and paintings. The sculptures by Ernst Barlach are particularly worth a visit.
