Photographer's Note

Village Travemünde is administratively a borough of Lubeck.

German münde corresponds to English mouth, and it is also used to describe an exit of river into the sea. For example: Tynemouth, Wearmouth in England or Warnemünde in Germany. Obviously, the river passing through Travemünde is called Trave.

Travemünde is a lovely resort town along the Baltic Sea coast. The building which you see in this photo is probably the most notable hotel. Its name has changed many times so the name which you can figure out from the board in the photo is not valid anymore. This building faces a wonderful sandy beach (behind me here) which is in the summer filled with the very popular in Germany baskets for people to sit in to hide from the wind. It is a great beach destination and from Travemünde northwards there are plenty of little resort towns with amazing beaches with fine clean white sand, some being wild other with high quality touristic amenities. The port in Travemünde has terminal for huge ferries and it has numerous connections with Scandinavia.

I regret I don’t have this hotel photographed in the context of the beach. Sadly, I am digging now in archival photos and I have no chance to return and improve the compositions. Most the time I spent in Lübeck was in the pre-digital times and my first cameras were of poor quality.
