Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania is located in northeast Germany. Although the landscape is magnificent with hills, lake country and fine sandy beaches and dunes, the northern region of Germany, Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania, is not very known by most of the tourists from abroad. Approximately 1.8 million residents live in its 23.170 square km area, making it the most thinly populated state in Germany (79 inhabitants per square km). Many inhabitants live in or around the bigger cities of Rostock, Schwerin, Stralsund and Wismar. These cities have all a history rich in tradition and charming historic town centres.

"Mecklenburg-Vorpommern" (in German) has a maritime flair. Its 1.712 km coastline, with 354 km of outer coast, is the longest of any German state. With the natural beauty of its varied coastline, its multitude of lakes, and its beautiful forests and fields, Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania will soon become one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Germany. Rugen - Germany's biggest island - was and still is a beautiful and very charming bath with sandy, mediterranean beaches and recreation resorts. All around you will find the fascinating bath architecture of the 19th century, when the island was the first summer holiday address for the German upper class.

Along the Baltic Sea coastline you will find less crowded but maybe even nicer Sea Baths like Fischland, Darss, Zingst, Warnemunde or Prerow. However, Mecklenburg is not alone a land of the sea, but also the a land of lakes. The largest lake in the state and all of Germany is the "Müritzsee" with an area of 110 square km.
