Job Perks... Schwerin, Germany

Last week I went on a 3 day business trip with my boss to the city of Schwerin, located way up north-east, a 6 hour train ride, part on the super fast German train going at times 249 km/h! (1 km = 0.62 mi/h). Our meeting was in the local castle... a beautiful building on an island on one of the many lakes located there. Schwerin is the smallest state capital in Germany.The state is one of the former East Germany states and the castle needed LOTS of work done on it. It is still being worked on.

On the second day, after the meeting, we were taken on a tour of the castle, including places normal tours don't go to... like the roof! Here are some of my best pictures:

Our meeting was on the 3rd floor... somewhere here:

 


 


 


 


 


 


It was a lovely trip and the city is worth another visit some day.
