Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is a state, or Bundesland, on the northern coast of Germany. It borders the German Bundeslander of Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony, Brandenburg, the West Pomeranian Voivodeship in Poland, and the Baltic Sea. The capital of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is Schwerin; other towns include Rostock, Neubrandenburg, Greifswald, Wismar and Guestrow.

To get to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, travellers can either fly to Berlin or Hamburg from domestic and international cities and take a train to Rostock. Transport around the northern part of state is easy without a car; trains and buses travel between most towns. To access the national parks, it may be best to have your own transport.

Budget hostel accommodation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern can be found in Rostock, Greifswald, and Schwerin. Look for the words “Jugend” and “Herberge” or “Jugendherberge,” as those translate directly to “youth hostel.” In smaller towns or along the coast, consider a guesthouse (“gasthaus”) or bed and breakfast. There are some hostels in the seaside villages; be sure to book in advance as they will fill up in the summer months!

Once you have your hostel accommodation sorted, begin to explore this popular destination. The Baltic Sea coast is full of holiday resorts, charming villages, and prehistoric circle forts, dolmens, and megaliths. There are more than 1000 prehistoric sites in the state. In the 12th century, Henry the Lion conquered Mecklenburg and Vorpommern and both became part of the Duchy of Saxony. In the 19th century, Mecklenburg became a Duchy in their own right, while Vorpommern became part of Prussia. The two were only unified after the Second World War.

The city of Schwerin has one of the most impressive castles found in Germany. Schwerin Palace in its current state dates to the 19th century, although there has been a fortress on this site since the 10th century. Schwerin Palace is nicknamed “Neuschwanstein of the North” and is a must see on your visit to Mecklenburg Vorpommern.

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has three of Germany’s national parks, almost nature and landscape reserves, and one of the most impressive coastlines. The white cliffs of Jasmund National Park and the Western Pomeranians Lagoon National Park are well worth a visit. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is also home to some of the darkest skies in Europe, especially near National Park Mueritz. It is a potential site for an International Dark Sky Park.
