Güstrow – a place to visit
Güstrow is the seventh largest town in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
The name Güstrow comes from the Polabian Guščerov and it means: lizard place (although I didn’t see a single lizard!)
This is the post office…
… and a beautiful old letter box where I sent my postcards.
However, Güstrow is especially known for its renaissance castle.
Who wouldn’t want to have such a garden?
I was especially impressed by the ceiling in this room. There were so many interesting details…
In the vicinity of the castle, there is quite a big lake where you can rent a rowing boat for 6 euros per hour. From our little boat, we could see some fine houses.
And we really enjoyed our walk around the lake. It was a perfect day trip!
