"Lübeck's most beautiful daughter":
the Baltic coastal resort of Travemünde
The world-famous Baltic coastal resort of Travemünde has been part of Lübeck since 1329 and has been a district of the Hansa city since 1913. It features the most impressive architectural beach promenades along the German coast, offering a broad sandy beach in the protective enclave of the Lübeck Bay, a true paradise for sailors and bathers.
The Travemünde Casino along the elegant Kaiserallee with its fin de siècle bath architecture is one of the most traditional in Germany. Surrounded by hundreds of yachts, the four-mast tall ship "Passat" is berthed in the port of Travemünde as a museum ship and trademark.
Travemünde still has a lot to offer in the months in which sailing sport is suspended and the cold water puts paid to bathing. The Brodtener Banks, a steep coastline, in some places 20 metres high, stretches along for four kilometres, hiding the golf course behind, which is one of the oldest in Germany.
