like Waren (Müritz) prove that the Mecklenburg Lakes have more than just beautifull nature to offer. Marina passages and the proud "old towns" like the little town Malchow or Krakow are nice
places to stay.
A visit to the church and the cloister of Malchow is well worth it and the town of Plau am See is also wounderful place for the Mecklenburg tourist.
The towns and villages of the Mecklenburg Lake District are rich in old and venerable castles, fortified castles,
mansion-houses and manor houses, to which magnificent chestnut, oak or linden-tree avenues often lead.
Each of these old buildings has its own, often legendary, history.
Today they are open to visitors and offer fascinating insights into the past. Valuable collections of courtly art, furniture, miniatures and gilded decorations in Ludwigslust cardboard – a special kind of papier mâché - are among the surviving and well worth seeing items. The castle gardens, laid out with great attention to detail, complement the architectural ensembles and are a great attraction for visitors.
