We stopped by here on our way to Berlin and it was worth the 60 km detour. The castle was under renovation when we visited, but you could still visit most rooms. The tour inside will take you about an hour and you can do...More

"All that glitters is not gold". It's not Versailles or the Schoenbrun but from the exterior it is a pretty cool castle. The problem is, when you scratch below the surface it's mostly restoration and paper mache! It creates a beautiful image but there is...More

We visited Schwerin as part of a three day drive and stayed at a hotel at the railway station. From there the old town is a 10 minute nice walk away along water, and from there the Schwerin castle is only five minutes away. We...More

It was really easy to catch the train from Rostock Hbf to Schwerin Hbf. It's about 1:04 long ride. If you buy daily round trip it's 13.5 euros. Also, with train change in Rostock you can continue to Warnemünde. City is lovely and it's short...More

Always thoroughly lovely to wander the Castle here. The renovations are making the gardens walks better and better with the beautiful gold rooftops shining in the spring sunshine. Gorgeous.

Lots of ceramics and portraits. Would have liked to see complete room settings i.e. bedrooms and dining room settings. Very reasonable entrance price and cafe is lovely.

One has to visit this Castle to admire its presence on the seashore which attracted me so much when compared to other castles... A must visit place in northern Germany...

Very pretty from the distance across the lake. Best for photos on a sunny day. The guides, while good, don't want to talk about the role of the art in the German nationalist revival of the 19th century.

I have been looking for a Warnemunde cruise port tour to Schwerin that does not run 10 hours. Are there any?

I booked an excursion with the Celebrity cruise ship during our port stop at Warnemunde.My suggestion is to take a bus tour around the city & a visit to the Schwerin castle if you don't want the long hours to Berlin.
thanks for Schwerin castle review. Do you know if Schwerin Mitte station is closer to castle ?

While Mitte is a closer station be sure that your train stops there. Most inter city trains will be stopping at the main station.
how is the best way to get yhere from the cruise port in Warnemunde? Is there frequent train service?

You can also try bus services (ex: Flixbus) it costs only 5 Euro. The castle is walking distance from Schwerin HBF.
