Natural oasis and lifestyle


Idyllic peninsula and waterfront views

Experience nature and lifestyle by the sea. This is the new combination which the Priwall peninsula has to offer since the opening of Beach Bay. For many years, Priwall lay in a deep sleep similar to Sleeping Beauty but now the princess has awoken to new life. Priwall enchants you with its untouched natural beauty and fabulous bathing beach. By contrast, the new holiday resort of Beach Bay with its lifestyle offers and modern architecture invites guests to enjoy a carefree holiday by the sea. Here you can rent wonderful holiday apartments and houses through the agents Novasol and Landal. Take a look at the charming Passat villas right on the marina or the idyllic dune villas in beach house style! Travemünde’s emblem, the storm-tested four-masted barque PASSAT, lies in its permanent berth on Priwall’s new promenade along the river bank. Explore the new circular route along the marina and continue along the bank of the Trave as far as the Priwall car ferry.


Discover the new side of Travemünde and visit Beach Bay on the Priwall promenade. In this new holiday complex, you can find everything your heart could desire for a wonderful, worry-free holiday on the Baltic Sea. Whether summer or winter, enjoy the benefits of this modern resort with its holiday apartments in stylish villas on the promenades and dunes and many wellness and leisure offers – indoors and out. Go shopping in the BayHall indoor market and try out the cool cuisine from Hennsler’s Ahoi to CraftBay on the sea steps.


Who’s that swimming around with you in the Baltic Sea? What does a real lumpfish look like and why is a plaice flat? If you would like to know more about domestic sea creatures, pay a visit to the Ostseestation Travemünde on Priwall. Here you can look at the marine life in an aquarium and even feed them on a guided tour of the station – and of course ask as many questions as you like. Fascinating fun for large and small visitors alike! The Ostseestation is located in Beach Bay on the new Priwallpromenade right by the harbour.


On Priwall, you will find a wonderfully broad natural beach sloping gently down to the shallow water. The Baltic Sea waves splash softly on the beach, and your gaze wanders far over the whole of Lübeck Bay from Pelzerhaken to the coast of Mecklenburg. The fine sand on the beach with a wonderful dune landscape and adjoining woodland offer space aplenty for sun-worshipping bathers in summer who would like to relax away from the hustle and bustle of holiday life. Hire a beach chair for carefree pleasure on the beach! Throughout the year, Priwall beach invites visitors to indulge in extended walks in wind and weather, taking you from the Südermole jetty as far as the wildlife enclosure by the beach which already lies within the territory of Mecklenburg Western Pomerania – and feel free to continue on to the horizon.

Never again divided – the inner-German border on Priwall

On Priwall, the division of Germany from 1961 to 1990 was part of everyday life: while West German tourists relaxed on Baltic Sea beaches, attempts by East German citizens to escape were suppressed on the other side of the border. More than 5,000 people attempted to escape over the Baltic Sea during the years of division. According to the documentation evaluated, 174 attempts ended in death and 4,522 people were discovered and arrested. Only 913 attempts were successful. Today, there is nothing more of the strange border installations to be seen. A massive memorial stone on Mecklenburger Landstraße serves as a reminder of the border, however. “Never again divided – 3rd February 1990” can be seen above the engraved coat of arms of Travemünde and the Duchy of Mecklenburg. From 9.25 am on this very day, people were again able to cross this closely guarded strip of land unhindered. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. In the Border Documentation site in Lübeck-Schlutup, film recordings, photographs, personal documents and further memorabilia bring these years to life.
