Nearby: the Burgwallinsel town of Teterow

The nearest, slightly larger city is the city of the center. This is how the small town of Teterow is called. Only 17 kilometers away from Poggelow Castle you will find all the amenities of a quiet little town that are necessary for a relaxing and interesting holiday in the countryside.

Teterow was already known in Mecklenburg Switzerland in former times, because it always impresses by many small alleys and architectural monuments. The special thing about Teterow is its special history and architecture.

In the Slavic period the small town became strategically important. The place is situated on an elongated island in the Teterower See. This exposed location made it possible for the Slavs to build on a fortress / fortress, the Burgwallinsel, which is still very well preserved today. Embedded in the old walls lies Teterow with its idyllic alleys and picturesque little houses from another time and is waiting to enchant you and your fellow travellers.
