North of the Markt along Puschkinstrasse is Schelfstadt, a planned baroque village that was autonomous until Schwerin’s mid-19th-century expansion. The restored 1737 Schleswig-Holstein-Haus contains a gallery that features changing contemporary art exhibitions. Just north of here is the early-18th-century baroque Schelfkirche and Schelfmarkt, the former town market, with its half-timbered surrounds.
