There are plenty of cafés and restaurants offering a variety of food, snacks, drinks and more. Some of our restaurants and cafés were already there for guests for several hundreds of years. Others offer a magnificent view along with great food. You can taste original dishes from Mecklenburg and Northern Germany or try specialities from the Mediterraenean and more.

What kind of food and drink is special for the area around Schwerin?

Typical dishes from Mecklenburg are hearty. They usually include potatoes (Potatoes were imported in the 18th century), local vegetables and meat. The cuisine of the area is famous for fresh fish (like eel) and meat from wild animals like deer, boar or duck. Some very common local dishes include local fruits such as apple or plum and often taste a bit sweet-and-sour or hearty-sweet.
