Schwerin is the capital and second-largest city of the northern German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Munster Bad Doberan and Staatliche Museum Schwerin. Nikolaikirche and Schwerin Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Schwerin: Zoo Rostock (in Rostock), Kirche St. Georgen (in Wismar) and The Mollie Steam Train (in Bad Doberan). There's more to do: trek along Pfaffenteich.
