Travemunde is a borough on the northwest coast of Germany, located in the region of Lubeck and situated at the mouth of the Trave river. The port is seen as the gateway to Scandinavia and the Baltics, with crossings to Liepaja, Helsinki and Malmo amongst others.
It’s extreme location right on the northern coast of Germany, a region not particularly known for its appeal to holidaymakers searching for sun, sea and sand, means Travemunde is often overlooked as a desirable tourist spot, however its relative anonymity suggests it’s a secret that is best kept hidden. Formerly known as ‘The St Tropez of Germany, Trvavemunde has largely bogarted a luxurious reputation, and after wandering around the charming seaside town, it’s easy to see why the town was once so popular.
The vitality and vigour which once defined the coastal town may have been replaced by a more low key vibe, but the array of bars and restaurants still know how to show its visitors a good time. Classic German meals are provided at endless food stands and eateries, all of which can be washed down by a jug of wholesome beer. The entirety of the borough is a pleasant delight to stroll around, offering some impressive landmarks as you traverse across the land; the lighthouse is a striking piece of architecture and Seebad Museum is a must visit for anyone who thrives on educating themselves in the history of the town.
The best way to travel is by bike or foot, though there is also a bus system running across the town.
