Rostock to Berlin

Me and my brother are going on a short trio down to Berlin and Rostock and are wondering if there are any nice roads/places in the area between Rostock and Berlin. Don't want to do any autobahn driving.

As always - many roads lead to Rome...

A nice trip would be along the coast to Ahrenshoop, Prerow, Stralsund (town centre) and on minor roads to the Mueritz NP.

Alternatively go straight for Schwerin and eastwards to Dobertin/Goldberg and through the NPs on the way. Of course on minor roads again. The lake district is quite scenic.

Last year

I went from Rostock to Berlin last year and by letting my Tomtom avoid the autobahn I had a very nice trip. You can read about it on my website.
This is the page about the Rostock-Berlin part of my trip:

Thanks for the info guys. I was a bit afraid that the roads would be gray and boring in former east Germany but from jkrijts pictures it seems very nice to drive around there. I once took the autobahn to Berlin from Hamburg by car and it wasn`t very exiting, but Berlin as a city was very nice.
Hopefully we will be going on the 30th april, but I might have to go offshore in the North Sea instead and do some work .
