... of Müritz National Park is at the centre of the Mecklenburg lake district, one of the least populated parts of Germany. Until 1990, the Müritz National Park region was dominated by traditional activities such as agriculture, forestry and fishing. However, the area’s natural wealth and stunning landscape have made tourism increasingly important. Today, visitors are welcomed by several hotels and restaurants, guest and appartment houses and service facilities in Waren (Müritz), Mirow, Neustrelitz and Feldberg. True to the spirit of the region, they provide for you to book an experience of nature and to discover the Müritz National Park.
Together with Mecklenburg Lake district tourism association the National Park authority and the partner enterprises care about sustainable tourism in our region. In a common process, several protected areas in the baltic sea region follow within the Interreg-project Parks & Benefits the goal to fulfill the requirements of the European Charter of sustainable tourism. In september 2011, the Müritz National Park was certificated as a Charter Park for five years. But this isn´t the end of the process to a sustainable tourism development of the National Park region, as the work on the measures will continue. For implementing ideas, support is very welcome.
Here you find two documents summarizing the tourism development in the region and giving recommendations for further progress:
