My family took a tour of this castle during our Scandinavia cruise stop in Germany. It's a beautiful castle with impressive works of art. It's a must see if you visit Schwerin. It's sorrounded by water, a lake. You can take a little boat cruise outside the castle.

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.

We had a great tour guide that actually used to live.in the castle as a child when her father was a professor. The rooms are beautiful and so are the grounds outside. The town itself is very friendly and had great food.

Nice castle, went there with an hour left and where able to see the whole castle. Would've been more convenient if we'd be there an hour earlier but it was manageable. Great castle!

It's a very nice castle. Quite easy to reach by foot, bus or bike. The garden around the castle is free and really nice. Inside the castle you can go on your own or take a tour. Every room in the castle is really different. If you have a lot time, go visit the park which is in the south... More
