Touring the Neubrandenburg, Germany Area

I will be in Neubrandenburg, Germany at the end of November for several days. What is there to do in the area besides viewing the city gates? Is driving in this area something that can be done with ease by someone who has never been to this area?

Barry, as you're probably aware Neubrandenburg is in the middle of a beautiful lake district. And some lakes and towns are really worth visiting. One of them is the nearby Waren an der Müritz. Some information on the nearby lakes can be found here and here. Then you're also close to the Uckermark region. Just browse through the pictures here. You can day-trip to Schwerin (must-see castle), Warnemünde (one of the most beautiful Baltic sea-side resorts), Stettin (Szczecin, Poland), the island of Usedom (where the Nazis invented the rocket and from where NASA got all of the developers and know-how in 1945) and Rügen...
