There are five casinos in Schleswig-Holstein, and what is probably the most stylish of them, was opened on 5th May 1949 in Kaiserallee 2 in Travemünde. At this point in time, gambling had already enjoyed a long tradition in the Baltic spa town with a genuine casino already being situated there from 1825 onwards. Initially, it was only able to exist because the authorities "turned a blind eye". The first official licence was then issued in 1833, with gambling later being banned in 1872 following the foundation of the state.
In 1949, gambling underwent a renaissance in Travemünde, and since then, guests from near and far have been challenging their luck beneath the majestic candelabra and splendid stucco in Kaiserallee 2.
Today, you can chance your arm on four American roulette tables, three poker, and two Black Jack tables, plus 77 gaming machines in the COLUMBIA hotel building. The casino is open daily for play from 17h. The gaming machine area is open each day from 11h until around 1.30h.
