A well-rounded affair

Circular promenade in Travemünde

Strolling without limits in the resort

You can stroll without restriction and to your heart’s content on the new circular promenade in Travemünde which connects Travepromenade on Travemünde’s town side and the new promenade on the Priwall side with each other. Combined with a visit to the sights in the resort and two relaxed mini-ferry rides across the Trave estuary. Genuinely unique!

What to experience on the circular promenade on Priwall?

The best idea is to start your maritime promenade on the Nordermole jetty and take the small passenger ferry across the Trave estuary to the new Priwall promenade. Here you can go on board the famous four-masted barque PASSAT in the season from May to September. The Ostseestation lies on your circular route along the banks of the Trave. This stimulating marine centre and its aquaria with domestic sea creatures are open all year round. Then you have a short walk – past the coal yard with what is probably the most beautiful view of Travemünde – to the large car ferry which will take you back to Travemünde’s town side to Fährplatz at the fishermen's harbour.

Priwall in view

In Travemünde, it’s not only bus and train that will bring you to your anchorage but also the Priwall ferries. If you’re on foot, you can take the passenger ferries on Nordermole, or if you’re with your car, the car ferry on Vorderreihe. The word then is “Welcome Aboard” and “Cast off” for the Priwall peninsula. At the latest when you feel the salty airflow in your hair, you’ll be in the mood for your seaside holiday and can free up your mind. Enjoy the short crossing and let your thoughts run free – pure relaxation!

What to discover on Travemünde’s town side on a circular walk?

Arriving by ferry on the town side, you can see the Alte Vogtei administrative residence opposite Fährplatz. In the 16th century, Lübeck’s magistrate who was responsible for law and order in Travemünde, had his opulent residence here. Today, you will find an art gallery and a cosy café and restaurant with a large summer garden in the beautifully restored rooms in this residence. The spire of St. Lorenz church rises up at the centre of the Old Town, just behind the residence. The Seebadmuseum here at the heart of Travemünde invites you to take an excursion into the history of the resort.

On we go to the lighthouse

The circular route takes you on to the “Vorderreihe” promenade with numerous shops and cafés and to the redesigned Trave promenade. From here you can already see Germany’s oldest lighthouse in the distance on your route. Tip: You can visit a maritime museum on eight floors in the interior of the lighthouse. 142 steps lead you up to the viewing gallery from which you have a fantastic panoramic view over Lübeck Bay.

All things new

Travepromenade is also dressing up and has been redesigned with creative ideas based on a modern concept.

Go back to start on Nordermole

Now follow the Trave promenade to the pilot station whose operators every day pilot around 30 large ships safely into harbour. And now you find yourself back again at Nordermole at the start of Strandpromenade and you can sit down on the beach and unwind after your roughly two-hour circular tour. Or maybe you feel like going round again? Off you go!

I'm spinning around, move outta my way. I know you're feeling me 'cause you like it like this.
