Arts & Culture!
The city of Schwerin boasts a unique symbiosis of art, nature and architecture in Germany. Some call her "a gem mirrored by the lake" others refer to her as "a city between lakes and forests". With 13 lakes, parks, gardens and forests within her boundaries the city combines convincingly a natural setting for culture and a cultural setting for nature.
A large number of artistic and cultural institutions enrich daily life in Schwerin. Historically grown unique collections can be found in the State Museum. The State Theatre of Mecklenburg - lavishly renovated in recent years - enjoys highest recognition for the variety of its programme.
