“Schwerin Castle”

Reviewed September 21, 2013

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.

Our guide Tobias was simply fabulous !! He was so funny and personable !

We started first with Warnemunde which is a quaint medieval seaport that is still an active village for fishing and touristry. We then took a train to Rostock, and got to see St. Margaret's Cathedral that was truly spectacular !! Rostock is a lovely, friendly city.

We then took another train to Schwerin. Although under renovation on some parts of the outside, the Schwerin Castle was still so magnificent !! Its so beautiful with all its turrets and towers, and masonry. The lakeside gardens were lovely and serene.

The one down is that there is a phenomenal amount of walking with the 3 community tour. Our feet and legs were really sore after we finished the day long tour, but we saw so much, and experienced so much!!!!!

This was part of our tour with SPB Tours when we called at Warnemunde on our Baltic Cruise. We started at Rostock and had 4 hours on a walking tour which was great and very informative by our good guide. There were 7 in our tour group. We then took the express train to Schwerin and walked through the town to the Castle which is absolutely stunning. The architecture is amazing. The castle tour was good with many wonderful rooms and artifacts with great porcelain and paintings etc. well worth a few hours.
We then enjoyed a tour of the gardens including the walled garden and the rear of the castle.
Lots of really nice buildings in the locality of Schwerin Castle.
We returned to the station for the return to Rostock and on to Warnemunde. A really pleasant full day full of history.

The guided tour on Sundays is very interesting! There is a security check first before you may enter.

As castle goes there are more impressive ones, but if you are in Scherin you should spend a couple of hours in and around the castle. Nicely restored in is former greatness with a nice garden overlooking the lake and a café.
