Bathers feel almost like they are at the sea at the sandy beach of Zippendorf, which is up to 20 meters wide. The elongated city beach is located on the southern shore of Schwerin's inner lake and is also easy to reach on foot or by bike from the old town.
With a width of 20 meters and its enormous length, Zippendorf beach is the largest sandy beach in the city. Hundreds of bathers come here in the summer. The historic beach promenade invites you to stroll and its cozy cafes and restaurants provide for your physical well-being.
