Sweet dreams are guaranteed in the sleeping beach chair
It’s a magic moment when the first tender pink rays appear on the horizon at daybreak, and the beach in Travemünde is bathed in the dewy dawn. The seagulls strike up their maritime concert, and a new day begins in the real North.
Since 2016, guests in Travemünde have been able to enjoy the perfect sunrise on the Baltic Sea beach, snuggled up in soft bed linen with a cup of coffee in their hand — in one of the four cosy sleeping beach chairs. They are located on the beach promenade on the broad sandy beach with a direct view of the sea.
It is the ultimate childhood dream to spend a night on the beach under a clear starry sky. This dream can now come true here in the Bay of Lübeck — and with a degree of comfort that can only be offered by your bed at home or in a hotel. Because who wants to leave for home or their holiday accommodation after a beautiful day on the beach with a swim in the Baltic Sea, a lot of sunshine and even greater relaxation? The day can be brought to a better close over a glass of red wine directly by the seaside, with your feet in the sand and the roar of the waves in your ear — this is pure bliss.
The sleeping beach chair is 1.40 metres wide and equipped with fluffy cushions and thick duvets, romantic lighting, a bottle of water for the night and some light reading matter for the evening. A tarpaulin can be fastened over the entire area of the chair, protecting you from wind and weather. Two lateral portholes and the transparent front of the tarpaulin reveal a view of the Baltic Sea beach and the sea itself even if the cover is pulled up. At night, these windows can naturally be obscured from prying eyes.
In the morning, you are woken not by the alarm but by nature — with the soft red hues of dawn, the roar of the surf, a concert of seagulls and the aroma of coffee. Because on request, a complete breakfast can be served directly at the sleeping beach chair. Tables and chairs are at the ready on the small wooden terrace — this is how the day should begin.
Freshly invigorated and well rested, guests can then explore their surroundings. Travemünde has a lot to offer. Anyone wanting to get to know the bay from a different perspective, should undertake an extended walk along the steep coast of Brodten. Over the course of centuries, the sea has fashioned a rough cliff here as high as a tower. On one side, you have a free view over the Baltic Sea, the white sails of the ships and big vessels coming to Travemünde from Scandinavia. Landwards, the scene is dominated by gleaming rape fields in the spring and blooming North German flora by the wayside.
And later take a refreshing dip in the Baltic Sea waves, soak up the warming sun or maybe spend a second night in your sleeping beach chair under the starry sky — it’s so hard to tear yourself away.
