Boardwalk – see and be seen. The boardwalk of Travemuende was built in the years 1898/1899 in order to attract additional international guests. At the same time it was supposed to protect the newly built mansions in times of flooding. Thus a 1.7 km long walkway was erected which today gives visitors an excellent view of the bay, and the Priwall beach.

It started as a bet for some bottles of Luebeck’s Rotspon wine in 1888. Since then Travemuende Week has developed to become one of the greatest sailing events worldwide. More than 3,000 sailors from 20 different nations take part in the sporting event in Travemuende.. Last year almost one million visitors came to Travemuende Beach to enjoy both the maritime sailing event and a great side programme on land. This year a diversified side programme will be presented along the boardwalk again. Craftsmen, musicians and restaurants perform several programmes. Several beach clubs invite to make party, have fun and dance in the sand. Another musical offer is Tanz-Tee am Meer, a dancing workshop where participants can show their cha-cha and merengue dancing skills. Families will certainly like the children’s programme at the Nordermole.

Enjoy the sunshine on the beach
Travemunde has a fine stretch of sandy beach with a very smart promenade behind it. There are showers on the beach and the regulars, or the better organised, can hire the use of wicker beach chairs - all of which face the sun.
We swam out to the diving platform and used the slide to launch myself back into the water.
A noticeboard told us the air temperature was 28degrees and the sea temperature 21 degrees Celcius. The sea certainly didn't feel cold. My daughter didn't like the jellyfish but they were the harmless variety so if you didn't mind bumping into them occasionally they wouldn't harm you.
There's a smart, clean stall selling chips and other starch rich foods but that's about it. All very sedate really - not tacky at all, almost chic but very pleasant.

Walk on the strand ...
Walking on the boardwalk at Travem?nde is a delightful way to spend some time. Here you can see the lone modern tower that existed back when I visited. I am sure there are more now:(
A walk on the strand ... II
The daily promenade on the strand is one of the most enjoyable activities in Travemünde. It helps you work off all that FOOD:)
Held here in 2002. I'm not sure if it is here every year but it is a thing to see in person if you can track it down.
Whats better than laying out in the sun on a sunny day and getting a sun tan? Well heres a cool place to do it. With yellow chairs you can rent and everything.
