For those driving in Germany, let it be known that the german police are very hot on speeding. It can be frustrating to have to stick to a (sometimes) suburban speed limit of 30 kph, but you can rest assured that if you do get caught speeding, you will get hammered with, at the least, an on-the-spot fine. At the worst, they can take your licence away. So, beware! Also, if you are visiting in a car, make sure that you have headlamp converters fitted (for english vehicles), as well as a fire extinguisher, a warning triangle, fluorescent waistcoats/jackets for both the driver and all passengers, and a first-aid kit. Failure to have any of those may result in a hefty fine, so be warned. Also, many minor roads operate on the "priority to the right" system, so if there are no road markings, beware of cars joining from the right. They may have priority.
Rough cobblestone pavement like this can be found in many streets of the old town and Schelfstadt. For the sake of your ankles and toes, wear shoes that are suitable for this.
Feeding swans and ducks on Lake Schwerin always take care! Some of the swans like your fingers more than bread.
