Moin is what you say in the north, Moin Moin already is hot air. People from the north aren’t that communicative, the best way to start a chat is over a beer and schnaps (Lütt und Lütt) at the traditional pub Hein Mück.
Once a small fishermen’s village, Travemünde today is one of the popular beach resorts at the Baltic sea. During the 1820th years, tourists from northern and eastern Europe traveled to the new opened Casino (today a 5*star hotel), during the 1920th sailing events like the Travemünder Woche and open air concerts were organized for the international audience, in the 1960th it was a VIP location for stars like Sophia Loren, Curd Jürgens and Onassis. With a little luck, one of the big sailing ships is in town and you get to see some handsome sailors like these guys!
While strolling through town you find stone witnesses from all periods: small fishermen’s houses, elegant Belle Époque Villen, the former Casino and the Maritim hotel from the 1970th, the by far highest building in the bay (the Café on the 30th floor allows a wonderful view).
The station Strandbahnhof (built in 1900) makes it easy to imagine how life was in these times – you just have to substitute the modern and functional dressed people withhat wearing Ladies in summer dresses. Every hour the train from Lübeck arrives and brings in sun hungry guests for the day, the train ride takes only 25 minutes from Lübeck main station and passes the historic settlement of Gotemund.
