About 20 km from Lübeck city centre lies Travemünde - a former fishing village, situated right on the Baltic Sea. The place is stunningly beautiful and the big ships of the Baltic Sea pass very close by. Germany's oldest lighthouse, which today also houses a maritime museum, is located right at the mouth of the Baltic Sea. It is estimated that the original lighthouse was built as far back as the 14th century, but in 1534 it was attacked and destroyed by Danish troops. It has since been restored and today offers a magnificent view from 31 metres above sea level.
