Travemunde (Lubeck), Germany

Located at the mouth of the river Trave in Lübeck Bay, Travemünde began life as a 12th-century fortress before becoming part of the free city of Lübeck in 1329.Today it is a major port—with ferry connections to Sweden, Russia, Finland, Latvia and Estonia—and a charming seaside town complete with almost two kilometers (just over a mile) of pristine white-sand beach. It’s a lively city that blends an aura of tradition with a contemporary atmosphere. Streets in the atmospheric Old Town (Altstadt) offer traditional pubs and restaurants, plus cafés and shops—as well as the opportunity to watch large ships sail by.
