Destination guide

Love water? You Muritz visit the Mecklenburg Lake District

Like messing about on the water? Then you'll love a vacation on Lake Muritz, the 2nd largest lake in Germany. Part of the Muritz National Park, a Muritz vacation rental is a popular base for exploring the vast Mecklenburg Lake District. Naturally, the lake is a magnet for outdoors enthusiasts, but it also promises charming, lakefront towns, including the medieval town of Muritz (now known as Waren) which is perched on the lake's northern shores. Here you can visit the Muritzeum, the largest freshwater aquarium in Germany. And don't miss a selfie with the fairy tale-esque water tower on the Nesselberg.

Things to do

Keepin' it fresh—Germany's largest freshwater aquarium

Perched on the northern shores of Lake Muritz is the medieval town of Waren. Formerly known as Muritz, it's the largest town in the region and is crammed with quaint shops, taverns, and authentic German restaurants. Don't miss a peek at the fairy tale-style water tower in the town's Nesselberg quarter. It's also home to the Muritzeum, the visitor center and nature discovery center for Muritz National Park. Aside from its fascinating nature exhibits, it houses the largest freshwater aquarium in Germany, where you can get up-close-and-personal with some of the lakes' native species, such as turtles and crustaceans.


Messing about on boats on Lake Muritz

Covering an area around 45 square miles, life in the Muritz region pretty much centers around its eponymous lake. You can rent a sailing boat from the many lakefront marinas, and spend a day exploring the hidden beaches and quaint villages which dot its shores. Feeling energetic? Then book a guided kayaking tour or windsurfing lessons. While kids will love simply splashing about in its cool, clean waters. Book a Muritz vacation rental overlooking the lake, and enjoy relaxing with a glass a wine on your private deck as the sun sets.


Lake Muritz simply sizzles in summertime

Germany is not known for its tropical weather. It famously experiences all 4 seasons, sometimes in a single day! The most popular time to visit the lakes region is in the summer months, between June and September, when temperatures reach a balmy 70-75 degrees. It's also when demand for Muritz vacation rentals is at its highest. For the widest choice, visit in spring or fall, when the weather is cooler, but the sun still shines and there's plenty of opportunities to get out on the water. In winter, the mercury drops towards freezing and snow is not uncommon.
