Car Hire Neubrandenburg
Neubrandenburg is a beautiful city located in the Mecklenburghische Seenplatte district of the Mecklenburg Vorpommern state of Germany. Neubrandenburg was settled in the 13th century by Premonstratension monks who came in the area to live in the Broda Abbey monastery. In present, Neubrandenburg has a population of a little over 65,000 residents living on an area of 86 square miles. Its nickname is Stadt der Vier Tore, translated as City of Four Gates. This comes from the four medieval gates that the city still has. It is famous in the world of sports especially because two world records for discus throws happened here thanks to Jurgen Schult, in 1986 and Gabriele Reinsch, in 1988. The medieval town is twinned with the city of Nevers in France, so French tourists are in town all the time.
