    The Beach Baskets

    The Beach Baskets
    2 more images

    I don’t think you can find these anywhere else in the world – the typical beach basket, the small “apartment” each beach goer can rent on the sandy beaches along the German coast. I have seen them almost everywhere along the Baltic Sea coast. The tradition goes back over 100 years and is still kept today. A fee of around EUR 5 will hire you one of those beach baskets that provide shelter from the sun as well as the wind.

    Port Fishery

    Port Fishery

    Right next to the harbour basin one can find a fish restaurant that serves smoked fish right from the sea. I don’t think one can get fish fresher anywhere else!! There is no service – one queues at a counter and orders the foot and then sits at one of the long tables overlooking the port.

    Villa Boehl

    The majority of hotels have are all modern structures that have been built in the last 20 to 40 years. The only building that keeps its original touch from beach architecture of around 100 years ago is the Villa Boehl, a beautiful old and charming hotel.

    The Map

    This photograph I took of one of the many maps that give orientation. Here one can see that the town is stretched out along the coastline. A walk from the one side of Timmendorfer Strand to Niendorf will take about 30 minutes, leisurely.

    The Beach

    The Beach

    The main reason why visitors venture to the Northern parts of Germany is to relax on the beaches, this also applies for Timmendorfer Strand. Here wide sandy beaches invite to enjoy vacation time. The water temperature however is something for hardened swimmers – during my stay in July – which is mid summer it was around 18 degree Centigrade. A beach promenade runs along the entire length of the beach.

    Okay imagine one of the typical North German reed houses with Japanese sculptures around it. I was a bit startled to see this oddity along the beach of Timmendorfer Strand. Asiatica however is a beautiful gallery that has art and books on offer and it’s a worse while stop along the beach route.

    A small port that accommodates yachts as well as fishing vessels can be found in Niendorf just east of the beaches of Timmendorfer Strand. This picturesque little port can be quiet busy during the summer months with many yachts making a stop along the route of sailing the Baltic Sea.
