Worth Seeing

Outside the boundaries of our Borough, as well as within them, there is so much that is worth seeing and experiencing. Here is some selected fuller information.

The Lewitz

The Lewitz, Germany's largest meadow landscape in one single coherent area, is a varied mixture of meadows, forests and waterways. It is particularly attractive for walking and cycling.

Lake Schwerin

At around 62 square kilometres, Lake Schwerin is Germany’s third-largest lake. It emerged after the last Ice Age, as a lake created from the tongue of a glacier. A dam – known as the 'Paulsdamm' (federal road B104) divides it into an inner lake and outer lake. The lake is located in the centre of an EU-designated bird-protection area and is a well-loved area for sailing.
