Plau am See [Plau on the Lake] in the Ludwigslust-Parchim district of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is a true gem for nature lovers, water sport enthusiasts and little adventurers too. Located on the western shore of Lake Plau,
one of Germany’s largest lakes, and the Müritz-Elde-Waterway, the area is officially declared a climatic health resort and part of the famous Mecklenburg Lake District. Plau am See was established as a town in 1235 and beautiful timber framed houses as well as lovingly preserved brick buildings in the historic city centre are silent witnesses
of the past.
