Introduction

Watersports are the main draw at this north-east German town in the Mecklenburgh Lake District of Germany, which itself lies on the shores of the Zierker See (lake). Canoes and boats are available for hire for the adventurous or for those who prefer to stay on dry land, the pretty harbour can be explored on foot. The port dates back to the 19th century when it was used by ships to transport cargo; nowadays the storage buildings are private residences and are a good example of German architecture of the time. Many of the restaurants and cafes here have outdoor terraces, taking advantage of the unique scenery - a combination of forest and lakes.


Müritz National Park is home to deer, cranes and a number of endangered plants; there’s more at the Orangery, a conservatory for exotic plants which is part of the 18th century baroque Neustrelitz Castle.
