Places of interest

Schwerin Castle, copyright Fritz Mader
Schwerin boasts a wealth of places of interest. One of the most splendid is its fairy-tale castle known as the "Neuschwanstein of the North". With a magnificent museum and orangery, it is set in romantic parkland together with the neo-baroque Mecklenburg State Theatre. The market square with its old town hall, gabled houses and lion statue is another attraction.
Schwerin Castle
Schwerin's fairytale castle is the regional capital's most famous landmark and the seat of the regional parliament. Surmounted with glittering golden spires it stands on an island in Lake Schwerin. In the castle museum, visitors can tour the state rooms in all their historic grandeur then relax in the Castle Café or the orangery with its mediterranean ambience.
Market square
The old town hall, gabled houses and the lion statue lend the market square its distinctive character. The cathedral rises up behind the graceful 18th century 'new building' with its classical-style columns. There are fabulous panoramic views of the town and the surrounding area from the spire of the cathedral. Just a stone's throw away are the Butchers Market and the old cathedral square.
The cathedral is a prime example of brick Gothic architecture, and is the town's only medieval architectural monument. The 14th century wall paintings in the Chapel of the Assumption are particularly eye-catching whilst the Gothic altar with a depiction of the crucifixion is another of the gems in its interior. Every year numerous organ recitals are given by organists from all over the world.
