Graffiti Deep Sea Monsters
The depths of the oceans have risen to the surface on this house. Must have been a graffiti artist with a lot of imagination. I particularly like the trick picture of the whale and the penguins (photo 2).
The graffiti house can be found in the small street that leads from the southeastern corner of train station square down to Pfaffenteich.
Schwerin Museum, which should be called as Schwerin Paintings Museum. Contains 2 floors, 1 floor filled with the paper cutting which looks like painting (I dont know how to call it). And the 2 floor full of beautiful paintings from 1500 AD. It might take 1-2 hrs, depends upon your taste. Entrance fee is about 8 EUR. Visit if you are more interested in paintings. I may not recommend as a must see.
View from the western side with Dom and old town in the background.
From the promenade on the eastern side you look upon the arsenal and the neogothic church of St Paul.
The former power station is now used for concerts and other cultural events.
A row of neobaroque houses accompanies the western edge of the lake.
The southern bank of the lake has some remarkable 19th century houses, among them the yellow villa of court architect Demmler.
Kückenhaus on the southeastern corner of the lake is a foundation for poor musicians. Court composer Friedrich Wilhelm Kücken, who died in 1882, donated his money and his house in his will to support needy colleagues.
The house of the military commander was designed by Demmler in 1842.
The colourful sculptures that splash water over the lake were created by the Swiss sculptor Claire Ochsner. They are part of a temporary exhibition that is shown in several places in Schwerin in summer 2009.
