We visited Schwerin Castle in August with a tour guide from SPB Tours. We had originally planned to travel here on our own from the port of Warnemunde, but I am glad that we didn't. Locating and changing trains would have been confusing. Also once you arrive in Schwerin, there is no obvious route to the castle.
I was disappointed when I saw the castle. The whole left side of it was under plastic...what a way to spoil a picture. The castle was still beautiful, well half of it! We toured the inside of the castle and it was nice. I had heard that the gardens were wonderful, so I guess I expected more. They were beautiful but were smaller than I had expected. I think sometimes it is better to not read too many reviews, because things may not live up to your expectations. Would I still recommend seeing the castle? Definitely. The town itself was also a nice place to sit outside at a cafe and people watch.
