    Schwerin Castle was for centuries the residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg and the Grand Dukes and today is the seat of the Landtag of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
    With its fantastic location, its towers and turrets and sparkling golden battlements, it floats on its island in Lake Schwerin.

    Surrounded by Lake Schwerin and Schwerin's inner city, the Schwerin Castle fascinates in its unique combination of architecture and landscape.
    The former Residenzschloss in Schwerin is one of the most important buildings of historicism in Germany.
    Including Renaissance buildings from the 16th and early 17th century with terracotta or ornamental gables was created between 1843 and 1857 today's castle view.
    The castle was redesigned according to the plans of the master builders Georg Adolph Demmler and Friedrich August Stüler in the style of the neo-renaissance. Strong influence on the design was exercised by the French Renaissance castles, in particular the Chateau Chambord on the Loire.
    Particularly worth seeing in the museum of the castle are the large-ducal representation rooms in the festival days, such as Throne room and ancestral gallery, as well as in the Beletage living and social areas such as dining, tea, flower room and Sylvestergalerie.
    The former children's rooms show precious porcelain from Meissen, Berlin and other European manufactories as well as courtly and Mecklenburg paintings from the 18th and 20th centuries. A visit is also worth the castle garden and the orangery.
    In addition to its function as a cultural meeting place, the castle is also the seat of the state parliament of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
