“Seaside holiday” and northern Germany might not be synonymous, but the unspoiled resort of Travemünde might change that. This amazing resort on the Baltic Sea was once the preferred recreation site for Thomas Mann and Fyodor Dostoevsky, thanks to its restorative waters and its famous casino.
This site, in GGermany's northernmost province, sets between the brutal North Sea and the bathtub calm Baltic. In the early 19th century, Travemünde took on the moniker of “the German St. Tropez.” Today, this beautiful stretch of sugar sand is host to an annual regatta and along a packed beachfront.
Travemünde's features an attractive riverfront and the beautiful 16th-century St Lorenz-Kirche. Inviting bakeries and seafood restaurants abound. Here, you’ll want to enjoy the beer and the local specialty, herring served alongside salad and boiled potatoes seasoned with cumin.
The region features a conservation area around Brodtener Steilufer, with bicycle and walking paths. The beaches here are amazingly quiet with breathtaking views of the Baltic Sea. Within an hour’s drive of Lübeck is the Baltic island of Fehmarn, accessed via a beautiful suspension bridge. This holiday resort is semi-famous for being the location of rock legend Jimi Hendrix’s final concert. On September 6, 1970, Hendrix played at the Open Air Love and Peace Festival just weeks prior to his death. Today, a monument stands in Hendrix’s honor, featuring his iconic Fender Stratocaster carved into a block of granite, along with the date.
