Well worth a visit. The interior is surprising. Many of the walls look like they are wood lined but are not. I won't spoil the surprise. The staff are very good. The grounds are also lovely. nice place to walk after being inside.

We visited the cathedral which is surprisingly big. Main attraction for us was the 10 min walk up the church tower to enjoy the 360 degree view over Schwerin. Good spot to take pictures, remember your zoom-lens.

The history of the cathedral is dramatic. From Napoleon using it as stable for his horses to the USSR soldiers during WWII. This and much more can be seen here.
