We had a beautiful September day and we loved our walk around the lake. Leaves were turning and the locals were out taking a leisure walk. I highly suggest you take a moment to do the same.

This lake is lined with trees and a nice path for a romantic stroll. Very picturesque, with Schwerin in the background.
