The annual Sand World festival takes
place from early July through early September. Each year's festival has a
different theme. (These pictures, which were taken in 2003, show the Tower of
Babel and a lineup of Egptian pharaohs.)
Travemünde's other big summer event is
Travemünder Woche in late July,
when nearly 1,000 sailboats and 3,000 sailors join locals and tourists for a
week of regattas, live music, and parties.
In winter, the Neujahrsmarkt Travemünde
is popular, especially with Germans and with Scandinavians who arrive ferry for
the week-long market that runs from the day after Christmas through New Year's
