Timmendorfer StrandGermany

Fill your lungs with fresh sea air and experience this rejuvenating resort on the Baltic Coast, where gentle bay waters lap at a wide, sandy shoreline.

Timmendorfer Strand and its easterly neighbor Niendorf make up the southerly stretch of the Bay of Luebeck on Germany’s Baltic Coast. With a long stretch of sandy beach, a chic marina and a wide range of exciting activities for families to enjoy, Timmendorfer Strand is a fantastic coastal getaway in northeastern Germany.

Sunny summer days are a breeze in Timmendorfer Strand. Check out the town’s namesake Timmendorf Beach and see what’s happening. Go for a walk along the water’s edge or find a pleasant spot to lay down your towel and relax. You can also rent a strandkorb, or covered beach chair, for protection against the sun and wind.

Swim in the sheltered water of the bay or try your luck at popular local beach sports, such as volleyball or windsurfing. The SportStrand-Klub can fit you out with all the equipment you need for fun in the sun. Panoramic views of the Baltic Sea are best enjoyed from the pretty timber Timmendorf Pier at the heart of the beach.

Unlike some other beaches in the region, Timmendorfer Strand’s waterfront is bordered by trees. Wander in the shade or grab your bike and ride through the dappled sunlight. Find out what events are on at Strand-Arena. You might see an exhilarating round of beach volleyball or a live music concert.

Find out about the marine creatures that live in the Baltic Sea by visiting SEA LIFE Timmendorfer Strand. This family-friendly aquarium presents the chance to see sharks, fish and rays up close. If you feel like getting a bite to eat, choose from the cafés and restaurants that surround Kurpark on the nearby foreshore. Alternatively, get some takeout and enjoy a beach picnic. Further east, Hafen Niendorf has a pretty marina and collection of restaurants serving fresh seafood dishes.

Timmendorfer Strand’s main railway station is a 20-minute walk from the foreshore. The town can also be easily accessed by car from the regional center of Luebeck. Rent a vacation house or book a room in a waterfront hotel to experience having Timmendorfer Strand’s beautiful beach on your doorstep.
