unveils a new face

Life is a beach

Swimming trunks and parasols in summer. Fresh breeze in winter. Simplicity and authenticity. Family holidays spent with the kids, or couples enjoying a weekend away. Where conference teams can recharge their batteries. Guests in a maritime mood walking barefoot by the water, strolling with good friends on the unrivalled promenade circuit. Out at sea, a yacht glides away on the horizon. Right at the door, there are over a hundred boats and the magnificent barque the Passat. Beach Bay is the new face of Travemünde!

Head to BeachBay

Come to the new

side of Travemünde

Travemünde: In the Middle of Everywhere.

Whether from north, south, east or west,
take the most direct route to Travemünde via the A1 or A20 motorway.

Enter the following address in your navigation system:

Priwallpromenade 20
23750 Lübeck-Travemünde


Take the train from any German railway station to Lübeck. From Lübeck, a train leaves every half hour for Travemünde. Once you arrive at Travemünde, it is about 500 m on foot to the ferry over the Trave River to Beach Bay.

It’s really beautiful here: Take the ferry over to Beach Bay.

Take the car ferry across the Trave. After the crossing, continue on Mecklenburger Landstraße and then turn left into Dünenweg.
