When we think of the Lake District, things most likely to spring to mind are Lancashire, Scafell Pike and William Wordsworth. But what about Germany’s Lake District, also known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes? The Mecklenburg Lake District is the largest Lakeland area in Central Europe, consisting of 3 nature parks nestled around Müritz National Park, one of the leading examples of sustainable tourism in Europe. While they share a name, the Lakes in Britain and the Lakes in Germany are quite distinct from one another. Mecklenburg Lake District is mainly flat, boasts over 1,000 small and large lakes, and are dotted with palaces, castles and stately homes. The pristine nature in the area is well-protected for future generations, and the forest, lakes and marshes bring tourists from all over the world to explore, relax and enjoy the view.
