Once the site of a fortress, Travemunde has been part of the free city of Lübeck since 1329. The neighborhood's location on the mouth of the Trave river in Lübeck Bay made it accessible from the Baltic Sea and to tourists from Scandinavian, Eastern Europe, and Russia. By the early 19th century, it had become a popular resort town immortalized in Thomas Mann's novel "Buddenbrooks." Apart from the expected charm of seaside restaurants and shops, you also can find a docked ship called Flying P-Liner Passat that acts as a museum. If you're visiting at just the right time, you can grab a spot at one of the restaurants with a view of the water to watch the Travemünder Woche, an annual sailing race on the Baltic.
