Mecklenburg – a place to fall in love with

Anyone with eyes to see can and will enjoy the understated beauty of Mecklenburg and Pomerania. The harmonious transitions from forest landscapes to gently undulating fields, surrounded by lakes to the Baltic Sea areas, the sweeping sandy beaches to rugged coastlines, restoring tranquillity and strength to the senses. 

Mecklenburg's history reflects this power. To this day, the region has steadfastly maintained its independence from outside influences. 

In difficult times, it is clear that the people of Mecklenburg find the cohesion that lends strength to the local community. 

We Mecklenburgers and Prussians are the key to liberating the European nations, and we embrace this responsibility vested in us.

There is no better way to describe Mecklenburg than in the words of Fritz Reuter:

When the Lord God created the world for us,
He began here Mecklenburg,
proceeding then from the Baltic Sea,
He made everything here complete with His own hands......
beautiful indeed in all its entirety,
for all those who are born and grow old there;
and when an outsider enters this place,
and has eyes to see,
he cannot fail to notice
that the Lord God's hand has rested on the meadows and forests,
the mountains and lakes,
that He has elected Mecklenburg to be His very own
and that everything is good.

(Fritz Reuter 1874)

  • Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin

    There is plenty to discover in the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. From the Baltic Sea to the Lake District – the Grand Duchy is shaped by towns steeped in history, residences such as Güstrow or Ludwigslust and enchanting regions.

  • Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz

    Strelitz is the capital of the Grand Duchy. It is the birthplace of Queen Luise, who was rightly considered the queen of hearts thanks to her beauty, grace, gentleness, spirit and charm. She later became Queen of the Kingdom of Prussia.

  • Duchy of Pomerania

    Szczecin (Stettin) is the capital of the Duchy of Pomerania. The Ducal territories extend from the southern Baltic Sea coast across parts of the Mecklenburg Lake District to the Vistula. Rügen and Usedom are among the most beautiful islands that Pomerania has to offer.

  • Kingdom of Prussia

    Königsberg is the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia. It is still a centre of culture and commerce.
    Princess Luise Auguste Wilhelmine Amalie von Mecklenburg-Strelitz became the wife of Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia in 1793.

  • Prussia

    Broad swathes of Schleswig-Holstein also belong to Prussia after 1867, including Hanseatic cities such as Lübeck. The old architecture brings history to life in many places.
