Mecklenburg Schweiz

Mecklenburg Schweiz in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is an area of beautiful countryside sandwiched between superb Baltic beaches and the freshwater Lakes District that offers quaint villages, stunning castles and the chance to get back to nature. In addition to the idyllic natural surroundings, there is also an attractively diverse cultural life on offer.

Unexpected perspectives are revealed behind every hill and beyond every bend in the road. Golden-yellow fields of rape intermingle with the lush green grazings, deep-blue lakes with the shady forests. Poppies and cornflowers edge the fields, gnarled fruit trees and mighty chestnut trees line the avenues. A long-forgotten world is to be found in the villages – where brick barns are often bigger than the churches.

A back to nature experience: Mecklenburg Schweiz in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Just south of the long, sandy Baltic coast beaches and the tourist islands of Rügen and Usedom, and north of the region's Lake District is Mecklenburg Schweiz. This is an area of rolling farmland, castles, large stately homes and pretty villages with white buildings and red roofs. It's the ideal place to come if you wish to relax, take it easy and explore the countryside and nature reserves at your own pace. It's just a short drive to the coastal attractions and also to the lakes with fishing, boating and sailing; the perfect combination of two different types of holiday in one location.

Mecklenburg Schweiz in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for active holidays too

Although this is a laid-back, quiet corner of the region, that doesn't mean there's nothing to do. There are many castles and stately homes in Mecklenburg Schweiz, most of which stand in extensive wooded parkland. Or why not take a trip to a nature reserve or wildlife park, where you can see creatures as diverse as wolves and birds. The countryside is perhaps best experienced on foot or by bike, giving you time to stop and admire the views before dropping into a local inn for some great local wine and foods.

 

Mecklenburg Schweiz is an enchanting place, not only because of its natural delights but also because of its cultural wealth. Between the sparkling waters and wooded hills, visitors find manor houses and palaces with old parklands and gardens as well as an incredible abundance of cultural monuments and art treasures, museums and art galleries.
