Full description
Red double-decker buses fill the streets of Schwerin from the end of March until New Year's. On this tour, enjoy the opportunity to get off the bus to enjoy shopping, explore different neighborhoods, and visit museums, exhibitions, and attractions. The tickets are valid for two consecutive days, allowing you ample time to complete on your tour of the city. The buses run every 45 minutes from May to September, and every 90 minutes during the off-season. Weather permitting, ride in an open-top double-decker bus (with a closed roof in case of rain) from the White Fleet by Schwerin Palace through the historical old town, the Schelfstadt quarter, and through the Schelfmarkt to the shore of the Pfaffenteich – incidentally one of the ten lakes in the city. Heading across the old market with its town hall and cathedral, continue on to the central station in Paulsstadt and the Feldstadt with the old cemetery, where Rudolph Karstadt and others have found their final resting place. In the castle gardens, take a break from the tour at the historical Schleifmühle and admire this unique museum and the water-powered grinding and sawing of large fieldstones. Then, head along the Schlossgartenallee with its fantastic villas and stop to take photos at the famous view of the fairytale castle. Passing by Burgsee and the 21st Century Garden, gaze from the Rudolph Karstadt house at the Old Garden with its unique building of State Archives, ministries, State Chancellery, State Theater, art gallery, and castle. From there, Lake Schwerin, the third largest inland water in Germany, opens up in front of you.

    No free parking space found. Dropped my wife off at the bus and kept looking. Had already written off my tour. But to my delight I found that the bus driver had been waiting for me and that we could experience the beautiful tour together. We also liked the charming and funny nature of the city guide. A big thank you to both of them.

    It is worth it !

    Very good, detailed, interesting and nonetheless relaxed "travel guide" with an hour's drive through the outdoor areas and inner-city areas. After almost 20 years of election in the GDR, I would "return home" immediately. In short, together with a 4 lake trip you can feel at home in Schwerin right away. By the way, the ticket booked online can be exchanged for an individual ticket with the bus driver.

    Schwerin compact, recommended!

    We had used the 2-day opportunity and were able to enjoy two very different companions. The first emphasized funny stories, the second was more factual and extremely informative. Fortunately, the old town festival was just taking place, so we were able to get to know parts of the city that are normally not visited. Incidentally, the QR code does not work with the bus drivers. They don't have a reader. After talking for a long time, he gave me a normal ticket.
