Tour tip Mecklenburg Lake District
In the land of 100 lakes

In the Mecklenburg Lake District, nature sets the tone around the Muritz, the largest lake in Germany. That is why there is one thing above all in the region: calm.

No question about it, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is a paradise for short trips. Not only Hamburgers and Berliners appreciate this. Why should one also wander into the distance when stress and hectic are foreign words here, when a region that offers scenic attractions in abundance is practically on the doorstep? And about which Bismarck is supposed to have said: “When the world ends, I’ll move to Mecklenburg, because that’s where it will be 50 years later.” Especially in the south of the most sparsely populated state, there is a true wonderland for discoveries – and for water lovers: the Mecklenburg Lake District around the Muritz, the largest inland lake in Germany. Anyone who is on two wheels here will quickly find that the distances between the villages are a little further than elsewhere, so that a motorcycle tour does not degenerate into a stop and go between town signs. In many places, however, things are a bit rough: Either over now even listed cobblestone streets, or simply over a dirt road that serves as a connection to the next village. Signpost? Here and there a little sign on some tree – if that. The tour suddenly leads past the Teterow mountain ring, probably the most beautifully located grass track race track of all. Most of the year, however, there is quiet here so that the surface can grow back, because every year at Whitsun the stars should really ride on grass – and not in the dirt. It is also quiet in the Muritz National Park, which lies east of the Muritz Lake between Waren and Neustrelitz – a stretch of land in which sky and water compete with each other, which really presents the vastness and grandeur of the country. Here it is worthwhile to switch from two wheels to your own two legs. A recommendation that makes sense for exploring attractive and interesting towns such as Plau am See, Waren, Robel / Muritz or Malchow. After so much idleness, the odometer can still run a little on Deutsche Alleenstrasse. Of course, there are no less beautiful stretches to the right and left of this boulevard, which are also lined with countless trees. And another highlight should be mentioned: the view from the observation tower on Reherberg near Feldberg. What is there to see here? The answer is not really surprising: water. Or more precisely: the extremely charming and hilly Feldberger lake landscape.
