Müritz is a Kreis (district) in the southern part of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany. It is named after the lake Müritz. Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Demmin, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the district-free city Neubrandenburg, the district Ostprignitz-Ruppin in Brandenburg, Parchim and Güstrow.



The district of Müritz constitutes roughly the western half of the Müritz lakeland and the Müritz National Park. The lake Müritz has an area of 117 km²; it is the second largest lake of Germany after Lake Constance, and the largest lake entirely within the German borders.


The district was created on June 12, 1994 by merging the previous districts Röbel and Waren, and a few municipalities from the districts Malchin and Neustrelitz.
