A trip to Schwerin


Continuing my strategy of practicing my German in a new city every month, as the snow started to melt in April, I went north. Located about an hour from Hamburg, Schwerin is the capital of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state of Germany. The city sits between a handful of lakes and is just a short drive away from the Baltic Sea.

Schwerin is most famous for its schools, or castle. Inside the castle is a museum, and the expansive grounds along the lake are quite impressive. The old downtown of Schwerin is filled with cobblestoned streets and plazas, amazing fish restaurants (try Restaurant Lukas) and small-town German pubs.
