As I'm going Last week July, didnt want to head to far south to avoid the heat. Made the mistake a couple of years ago heading south in july was absolutley cooked !
Must have been a bunch of ex-GDR guys
Sorry, no pun intended
In fact, I like that region very much. Kind of melancholic landscape, similar to north-west Poland (Masuren). In summer really nice, lots of lakes, forests. Like Pottsy recommended, check out the city centre of Rostock, maybe Stralsund, Schwerin (castle). The coast from Rostock via Prerow to Stralsund is pretty, so is the peninsula of Ruegen.
Quedlinburg is also well worth a visit. It was in shambles after the end of the GDR, but has been very neatly restored.
Only when we pause to wonder
do we go beyond the limits of our little lives.
