If you are looking for a really quaint place in Travemünde, you will find it in the town’s fishing harbour. Here you can watch fishermen at work, stroll along the quayside or marvel at the numerous ships. Everything from small fishing boats to modern ocean-going cutters can be found here. The maritime character of Travemünde’s fishing harbour is a reminder of the popular seaside resort’s past as a simple fishing village. The harbour is also the best place to try freshly caught fish. You can do this in one of the small fish restaurants, where you can try smoked fish straight from the smoker, or at one of the food stalls.
