Schwerin Castle at sunset

On a cloudy, Friday evening, Schwerin Castle seems to glow in the last light of the day. Once home to the Duke of Mecklenburg, the castle, which sits on an island in  the Schweriner See (Lake Schweriner), is now the seat of Landtag (the state parliament). Boomer travelers who enjoy a mix of romance, culture and history will appreciate the charms of the castle as well as the historic district and many lakes of  Schwerin, Germany located in the northern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Have you visited Schwerin? Post a comment to share your experience. I have so much more to tell you about this lovely city. And, yes, I’ll be bringing Alan back here for a romantic trip.

Disclosure: Airberlin, VisitBerlin and The Oder Partnership City of Gdansk have provided this travel experience. As always, the opinions are my own.
