Lübeck-Travemünde: a sonorous name. The world-famous Baltic spa situated on the Trave estuary has belonged to Lübeck since 1329 – and has been part of the Hanseatic city since 1913. Travemünde is famous far and beyond the state's borders for its architecturally impressive promenade and wide, sandy beach located in sheltered Lübeck bay, a real sailing and bathing paradise.
Each year in July, Travemünde is transformed into an international Mecca for water sports enthusiasts for one week: Travemünder Woche is the world's second-largest sailing event and attracts around 3000 sailors in 800 boats to start in the regatta fields. This sporting event on the Baltic is traditionally flanked by a public festival on land, for which hundreds of thousands of people flock to Travemünde.
Travemünde also has lots to offer outside of the water sport season with numerous, inviting boutiques, cafés and shops, for example. Other attractions include Brodtener Ufer – impressive cliffs with a height of up to 20 metres and a length of around four kilometres, and by no means least, nearby is one of the oldest golf courses in Germany.
