A view of the sea - the long, white beaches of the Baltic Sea are perfect for long walks along the coast. Here you can feel the sand under your feet and breathe in the fresh, healthy air. In Boltenhagen, a stroll to the pier or a walk past the colourful buildings lining the historic central promenade are a must. Travemünde demands attention with its lively and rather glamorous upmarket lifestyle. Some of the restaurants and cafés here offer a pleasant, unobstructed view of the big ships passing by. Swimming, bathing and playing in the water are highly enjoyable activities on the long, gently sloping beaches of the Baltic Sea.
