Travemunde, Lubeck

4.2
#2 of 68 in Outdoors in Schleswig-Holstein
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.

  • They are two cities that are located to the North of Germany in the Baltic Sea. Highly recommended cities especially in summer to visit its incredible beaches. These two cities are filled with hotels and many restaurants. Highlights its beautiful homes and gardens. From Hamburg are about 100 km. aprox. From Lübeck around 15 km away. Trains run continuously from Hamburg. You can visit the same day Lübeck and Travemünde Strand
