Beautiful castle in Schwerin

To describe Schwerin castle, which architecturally speaking is also Germany's most attractive seats of regional government, as a jewel would not be an exaggeration. Fairytale-like, it is perched on top of a small island on Lake Schwerin. The golden dome shining in the sun can be seen from afar. The adjacent park is a beautiful sight and was part of the Schwerin National Garden Show. Once upon a time, Schwerin castle was also the seat of the Mecklenburg dukes. Today, it is partly a museum. Don't miss out on the magnificent throne room and the festively decorated ancestral portrait gallery on your visit to Schwerin.

These are the main appeals of Schwerin Youth Hostel:

  • Discover the regional capital of Schwerin with its very special flair
  • The city has many architectural and cultural highlights to offer
  • The city's castles, gardens and parks are interesting attractions
