I've been there twice and found it to be very walkable. Otherwise there are buses and trams. Map of public transportation here: nahverkehr-schwerin.de/export/…liniennetz.pdf where the squares are trams and the circles are buses. See also the city's tourism site in English: http://www.schwerin.com/english/index.phtml The attractions are each listed with a Google map so you should be able to figure out the transportation.

I also found Schwerin very walkable. From the front of the train station, I walked straight down the nearest street from the fountain to their beautiful lake-only a few blocks--then turned right and followed the lakefront walkway to some steps, turning right again and into the main Platz, where there is a tourist information center.

There are many lovely houses along the lake with beautiful facades. It is also easy to find the palace on the lake, with lovely gardens and a grotto, as well as the boat rides nearby, for a tour of the larger lake where the palace is situated. The palace, with an audiophone, was well worth a visit to the interior. I hope to return again next summer and see more of the region.

As mentioned, easy to walk around the city.

I downloaded the map off the Schwerin tourist website and made notes as to where I wanted to visit.

Last year when I visited, they were sprucing up the town (painting anything that didn't move) for the, then, upcoming garden show/exibition.
