The camera is installed on one of the upper floors of a hotel called Maritim Strandhotel Travemünde. The 36-storey building rises above the resort town. Built in the mid 1970s, this hotel has greatly increased the number of tourists in Lübeck.
Guests, especially on the upper floors, have a unique view from the window: the Baltic Sea, the peninsula of Privall and the huge, sandy beach of Travemünde. The building is also used as a beacon, which is placed on the roof.
In the old days, Travemünde was an independent town, founded at the end of the twelfth century. Before the area became a major tourist destination, its economy was based on maritime administration and fisheries.
If tourists are interested in classical German cities, not just in a beach holiday, Lübeck is perfect for them because the city has many historical attractions as well as habitual urban buildings.
