Timmendorfer Strand Things to Do

  • 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.

    more
  • The Town Centres

    Both Niendorf and Timmendorfer Strand have a small city centre. Most of the shopping concentrates around the centre of Timmendorfer Strand. Here one can also find attractive street cafes and restaurants.

    more
  • Kongress House

    This is the centre for events right next to the beach promenade and beach. Here many musical or artistic events are held. For information about the program simply consult the tourist information.

    more
  • 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.

    more
  • Tourist Information

    If you require assistance in making hotel reservations or wish to get information about attractions in the area the tourism information centre of Timmendorfer Strand is situated right in the centre. Their web page offers additional information as well as information about hotels and accommodation in the area.

    more
  • Sealife

    Sealife describes themselves as ambassador of the sea. A 220.000 litre ocean basin offers vistas of Blacktip Reef Sharks and colourful tropical fish. Sealife is open daily from 10 am, except Christmas Eve.

    more
  • Uncle Charly

    A monument has been set on a bench next to the harbour of Niendorf to Charly who lived between 1900 and 1987, a hobby sailor and fishermen who frequented this part of Germany regularly.

    more
  • 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.

    more
  • Niendorf Port – Fisher Boats

    The port of Niendorf is also the home of a fishing fleet that fishes in the Baltic Sea. Here you can view close up the work of the fishermen as they fix the nets and bring back the catch of the day.

    more
  • Niendorf Port

    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.

  • Asiatica Gallery

    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.

    more
  • The Sea Bridges

    Along the beach promenade one finds a number of sea bridges that serves as stop for leisure cruises along the coastline and offers splendid views over the beach.

    more
  • The Beach Baskets

    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...

    more
  • 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...

    more
  • Take a walk along the beach

    Even in the last days of darkest December, a brisk beach walk seems to be a popular activity with locals in this well known health resort.

Timmendorfer Strand Restaurants

  • Ice cream and coffee at snack booth

    Along the beach, on the lovely and green promenade of Timmendorfer Strand, which goes all the way to Niendorf and Luebeck, are many, many snack booths. There ppl can take a break from their swim, bicycle, walk or whatsoever, and have little meals, snacks, soft drinks, ice cream. Snack booth Moevennest provids with the best little meals, and is also...

  • Creamy tasting ice

    Doesn't that look tasty? And I don't necessarily mean the painter only but Moevenpick ice cream as well, which is quite famous in Germany for its great, rich, and very creamy taste. Not sure whether Moevenpick is a German, Austrian or a company from The Swiss? Anyway, they do offer fantastic tasting ice cream, almost as fantastic as Janny's. Worth...

  • Great cakes, bread rolls, and snacks

    Mien Baecker is a bakery which is located right inside that local & huge famila shop. Customers can sit & eat there (self-service). One would choose from their pretty big & fresh selection of baked goodies, tea, coffee, soft drinks. One put the choosen things on a tablet, pay and then take a seat. Very simple, very fresh & tasty. Most of the...

    more
  • Restaurant with snack booth

    Filou is a restaurant & cafe, and for my understanding they also have a snack booth in front of their restaurant that looks like a little lighthouse and offers fantastic fries, real crispy & hot. Also hot dogs to go - open if weather cooperates. Restaurant Filou itself was very crowded when we made it there yet still cosy. It's right on pedestrian...

    more
  • Inexpensive Pizza place

    Restaurant Feuerstein is lovely located at the Kurpark. So far I understand it's the most inexpensive place around. It's also a sportsbar, and restaurant for ordering pizza by phone. Service/waiters are friendly. Fast they get the meals done. We've been there for a small supper only and there for had only a salad, bread which tasted wonderful since...

    more
  • Meaty munchies on the beach

    This is where the locals buy their German delicacies in the summer, things like sausages, hamburgers, chips and coffee. I never had anything - it was closed, and it didn't look like the kind of place that had vegetarian options :))

Timmendorfer Strand Transportation

  • Driving on back roads

    The other year we didn't take the highway but mostly drove on back roads which was less a drive but cosy crawls behind hay trucks and such. That, with Trace Adkins tracks playing, we thought our detour was quite ok. Hemmelsdorf lies to the north of Luebeck between Ratekau and Timmendorfer Strand. In the area known as seagull island, the...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great shop that provids most of the categories mentioned: any thing foodstuff and drink, books, discount stuff, children & ladies & men's clothes, sporting goods, art & crafts & stationery, some computer and electronic items, gifts & souvenirs, music, bath and beauty related things, shoes, toys, games, and I think flowers too. Have never come to know a famila shop before, and I was really surprised by their staff's helpfulness, friendliness, and their truly kind way of treating their customers. If we had such a shop around I def. would stick with'em. Maybe famila's staff is trained in the states since such friendliness is still not happen too often with German shops. And: they are open on Sundays. Many parking spots in front of the shop. And the main bus station too.

    Up until today I personally haven't visit Sea Life though I do spend time in Timmendorfer Strand once in a while. Seems Sea Life to me is not really a must do thing. However, it's a nice opportunity on a rainy day, I guess. Discover the fascination of the underwater world at Sea Life Timmendorfer Strand – from mussels to sea horses, starfish and...

    How about a boat trip on the Baltic Sea from Timmendorfer Strand to Groemitz or the Fehrman island? We haven't done that as I really am not sea safe (those few times I needed to take a ferry my stomac did nothing but turn and turn and turn more) yet the offers for any boat trips do look interesting, and not too expensive.

    Not too sure whether minigolf could be considered a sport? However it's a funny looking game. This minigolf place right at Timmendorfer Strand's Kurpark is a very cute looking one.

    If I was to say whether minigolf or rather chess is considered a sport, I most likely answer "rather chess". But then again I have no clue, I yet think this huge painted chess board right at the Kurpark with cosy benches, looks very inviting. Sort of Italian style, like ppl that do the "boccia" thing. As far as I understand, one would ask for the...
