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.

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.

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.

Informative and lively mediated history of Schwerin and stories about buildings and places. Thanks. Very likeable that no canned voice over headphones but real, committed people accompany the tour. Excellent! The only negative is the uncomfortable seating (on the upper deck). Our recommendation!
