Mecklenburg-West Pomerania travel guide

4.1
Landmarks · Beaches · Castles
Claiming to be Germany's "must-sea" vacation destination, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania boasts nearly 2,000 km (1,243 mi) of coastline. Seaside resorts, sandy beaches, World Heritage-listed towns, and unspoiled natural areas are all within a seashell's throw. Take just a short drive from the Baltic Sea to start exploring one of continental Europe's largest unbroken areas of rivers and lakes. Deeper inland, the region's countryside is a colorful mosaic of small towns and sleepy villages. The surrounding rugged hills, sparkling lakes, and rivers were formed by glacial activity ages ago. A land rich in history and culture, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania contains more than 2,000 palaces, stately homes, and lavish gardens. Many now serve as venues for the state's array of things to do, including concerts, festivals, open-air operettas, and theatre performances. Rent a canoe to sail one of the region's countless lakes, or take a trip from the north of the state all the way to Berlin through the network of interconnected waterways.
