A big welcome to the Land of a Thousand Lakes

Crammed with stacks of natural appeal, the Mecklenburgische Seenplatte may seem quite a mouthful but it's the perfect destination for outdoor adventurers. Known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes, the region is made up of 1,117 freshwater lakes and forms part of the Muritz National Park, a UNESCO-listed World Natural Heritage site. Get your lakeland getaway off on the right foot by booking a Mecklenburgische Seenplatte vacation rental in the heart of the park. Boating, fishing, and kayaking are all popular activities, but there's also a theater and a museum for those who prefer to keep their feet dry.

Don't be shallow, jump right into Germany's lake district

Life in the lakes generally involves messing about on the water. Mecklenburgische Seenplatte attracts a loyal crowd of outdoors enthusiasts, who come to kayak or sail, or even fish for trout, perch and pike. Clean air and pure waters means it's also a big hit with the wellness brigade, and there are several spas and wellness centers which offer saunas, steam rooms and natural treatments. After a busy day on the water, why not kick back with a cool beer on the deck of your Mecklenburgische Seenplatte vacation rental.

It's marvelous medieval mayhem in Mecklenburg

The main town in the Mecklenburg Lake District is Neubrandenburg, a charming college town on the banks of Tollensesee Lake. It's famous for its abundance of Gothic architecture, including a medieval fortress and 4 city gates, the oldest of which is Friedlander Tor, which was built in the 1300s. Aside from its fort and gatehouses, the buzzy little town is also home to the Concert Church, where you can catch a magical performance by the Neubrandenburg Philharmonic Orchestra or see a show in the oldest theater in Mecklenburg.

Let's go walking in a winter wonder(Lake)land

Germany's lake district is at its best during the warm, summer months, when its cool, clear waters are abundant with boats and kayaks. The region often sees temperatures go up to 80 degrees, with plenty of blue skies and sunshine, and only the odd shower. However, it's also when the best Mecklenburgische Seenplatte vacation rentals get booked up quickly. If you want to avoid the crowds, consider visiting in spring or fall, when the temperatures aren't quite as balmy. In winter, the temperatures drop towards freezing and snow is not uncommon, so pack plenty of layers.

Take a hike, Mike, on the lakeland's rugged trails

A 2-hour drive north of Berlin, the Mecklenburgische Seenplatte is the largest lake region in Germany. The entire area is a hiker's dream. Part of Muritz National Park, a vast forest criss-crossed with hundreds of miles of rugged trails, there are various walking routes largely around the region's beautiful natural lakes. In the Serrahner part of the national park, you're likely to marvel at the thick beech forests, which are protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You may even spot red deer or raccoons hiding among the trees.
