Malchin - town on two lakes in the heart of Mecklenburg Switzerland

The town of Malchin, founded in 1236, with today about 7000 inhabitants, is located between the Malchiner - and Kummerower Lake in the heart of Mecklenburg Switzerland. Among Malchin's treasures worth seeing are the town hall with its colorful guild hall and the St. Johannis Church, dating from the 15th century, with its unique Frisian organ and Marian altar. Further sights are the water and fishing tower as well as the city wall and the museum of local history in the city mill with a permanent exhibition about "Siegfried Marcus".

The town of Malchin operates a modern outdoor pool with swimming attractions for young and old. Malchin is also known for the Mecklenburg Motorcycle Meeting, the Oldtimer Meeting, the Old Town Festival and the Tour Mecklenburg Switzerland (bicycle race).
