Welcome to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Welcome to Germany,
welcome to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern,

It's good to have you here! You have come to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for very different reasons - we want to make it easier for you to settle in.

Our newly designed welcome portal is intended to help with this. It offers initial orientation and provides a lot of information intended to give you a quick overview. How do I find a job, which language courses can I attend, where is the nearest immigration office, where is the nearest social welfare office? You will find all these on the interactive map, along with addresses and further contact information.

We wish you a successful new start, all the best for the future in our beautiful federal state and a lot of fun on the pages of

Stefanie Drese
Minister for Social Affairs, Health and Sports

Welcome to MV – Welcome to LUP

District Administrator of Ludwigslust-Parchim County Stefan Sternberg © Philipp Eisermann

Welcome to Germany,
welcome to the district of Ludwigslust-Parchim,

people moving to our district sometimes do not know a lot about living here at first: Where can I find which agency? Who is my contact person? Who can I ask if I need help?

People coming to Germany from abroad are also often confronted with a language barrier making the orientation in their new environment much harder.

We want to help you by offering the website "Willkommen in MV" in cooperation with the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern: At "" you can find any information in many languages that will help you to find your way and start to integrate and to take part in our society in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and in Ludwigslust-Parchim.

I wish you a good (re-) start!

Stefan Sternberg
District Administrator of Ludwigslust-Parchim County
