Magnificently situated in a landscape of lakes and forests, Schwerin renewed its links with its administrative past by becoming the capital of the Duchy of Mecklenburg in 1990. The origins of the town date back to the 11C when the Slavs built a fortress on what is now the castle island. It was not long, however, before they were expelled by Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony, who made it the second German town east of the Elbe. The bustling historic centre is also well worth a visit.
