If you visit the town of Goldberg on the lake you will see the many half timbered houses and in the gothic brick built church the organ and the altar are of special note. The local Museum of Goldberg should also not be missed as it has many interesting exhibits on the local area throughout the ages and is housed in a historic watermill surrounded by a typical farmer’s garden from past times.. One of the largest Dutch style windmills in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern can be seen on the southern shore of the lake.
A trip to Dobbertin is certainly worth while as the oldest building there is the monastery founded in 1220. The church was painstakingly restored under the direction of the architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel in the 19th Century and has the only double tower in the whole of Mecklenburg. Visitors can take a guided tour through the monastery or spend some relaxing time in one of the cafes. To reach the Goldberg Lake leave the A19 Autobahn at the exit Malchow-Laage, or if you are using the A24 then leave at Neustadt-Glewe. The aerodrome of Rostock-Laage is about one hour away.
