What to See in Germany

It is Schwerin’s main tourist attraction.

The Royal Castle of Schwerin

It is definitely royal, in scale and ambition. Its construction almost ruined the town financially, so you can say it’s payback time. The Royal Castle of Schwerin was once the home of the Grand Dukes of Mecklenburg – built mainly in the mid 19th century with clear architectural references to the grand castles on the Loire.

Today, it is used  partly as a museum, partly as the Parliament for the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. As we left the town to get on hiking the Seven Lakes of Schwerin, we kept looking back and out for a view of the castle.

The Royal Castle of Schwerin was quite impressive, the farther away we went.
