A beautiful castle set in the middle of a lake. A great garden surrounding it adds to its beauty. It is rightly nicknamed "Neuschwanstein of the North".

It wasn't raining this morning, and we had a beautiful walk in the Schloss Garden before heading to the Schloss museum. The museum is currently undergoing some renovations, and only the first 2 levels were open to the public.

Great picture taking opportunities. Good tour of the interior. I did not know the history of the place until I had a guided tour. I recommend one. Be sure to walk around the Castle on the sidewalk.

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.

While Mitte is a closer station be sure that your train stops there. Most inter city trains will be stopping at the main station.

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