Mecklenburg Switzerland

Mecklenburg Switzerland (German: Mecklenburgische Schweiz) is a landscape in the middle of the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, north of the Mecklenburg Lake District and immediately northwest of Lake Malchin and Lake Kummerow. The region lies northwest of the line from Lake Malchin via the Dahmen Canal and Lake Kummerow to the Peene(canal) near Neukalen and from there southeast of the line from Lelkendorf via Lake Teterow, Teterow and Groß Wokern to the Malchin Basin. However, there is no precise definition of its boundaries. The majority of the landscape lies within the Mecklenburg Switzerland and Lake Kummerow Nature Park. Its attraction include its unspoilt nature, the hills, its villages that have preserved their original character and its castles. Some 19% of Mecklenburg Switzerland is woodland and 10% is water.
The towns and villages of this landscape are:
Alt Sührkow, Dahmen, Groß Roge, Groß Wokern, Hohen Demzin, Lalendorf, Lelkendorf, Malchin, Neukalen, Schorssow, Teterow, Thürkow
