Schwerin Castle (German: Schweriner Schloss) is a palace located in the city of Schwerin, the capital of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state, Germany. It is situated on an island in the city's main lake, the Schweriner See.
For centuries the palace was the home of the dukes and grand dukes of Mecklenburg and later Mecklenburg-Schwerin. It currently serves as the seat of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state parliament (German: Landtag).

It is regarded as one of the most important works of romantic Historicism in Europe and designated to become a World Heritage Site. For this rank, it is also nicknamed "Neuschwanstein of the North".

The palace was built between 1845 and 1857, as a cooperation between the renowned historicist architects Gottfried Semper, Friedrich August Stüler, Georg Adolf Demmler and Ernst Friedrich Zwirner.
