On this tour through Travemünde, you will pass all the sights of the resort: Strandbahnhof – Strandpromenade – Brügmann Gardens – Lighthouse – Vorderreihe – Alte Vogtei – St. Lorenz church – Seebadmuseum – Fishermen's harbour (no guided tour).
You start at the Strandbahnhof station and follow the road to the sea past the ATLANTIC Grand Hotel Travemünde. Then turn right and enjoy the fresh Baltic Sea breeze along the revamped beach promenade.
The raised promenade with its beautiful plants gives you a fantastic view of the Lübeck Bay and you can enjoy the comings and goings of the big ships at any time of the year.
There is step-free access to the Kurstrand beach from here. If you want to go swimming or just fancy a walk on the beach, you can hire a beach-swim wheelchair free of charge from beach chair rental Seipel.
Or would you rather enjoy the sun in total relaxation and protected from the wind? Then the fully accessible Brügmanngarten is the right place for you. Open-air concerts are held here in the summer, while in winter the Travemünde Neujahrsgarten (New Year garden) is a lovely place to visit.
Proceed along Travepromenade past the lighthouse, the oldest in Germany. Look to your left to see the symbol of Travemünde on the other side of the Trave estuary: the four-masted barque Passat. It once belonged to the legendary Hamburg shipping company Reederei Ferdinand Laeisz, whose sailing ships were known all over the world and were some of the fastest of the time.
