Did you ever sing sea shanties at junior school and was there a song about a German fisherman? That can be relived in Travemunde each June as there is a sea shanty at this port on the banks of the Elbe River. A cross between a sea faring party and tall ships festival it has much singing and beer. Travemünde is a coastal suburb of Lübeck, the former capital of the Hanseatic League. Stark contrasts exist here between the legendary louche nightlife centred around the notorious Reeperbahn and its more sober historical buildings and culture that make it UNESCO-listed.  Your Ship arrives here – Click to see on Google Maps.Find your ship’s chat site + share your pictures + experiences to help others  Public buildings with huge gates, the 19th century neo-Renaissance-style Rathaus (town hall) with its tall clock tower, the Bismarck monument, 12th century St Petri Church and 17th century Lutheran St Michaelis are among many sights you can see on a walking tour. Travemunde is more than just a gateway port to Lubeck, with a beach famous for its roofed wicker beach chairs and many cafes and restaurants and Germany’s oldest Lighthouse, you could be excused walking round the town, relaxing on the beach and never getting to Lubeck.
