Small arts exhibition on the cliffs following the Trave estuary

We were invited by our friends Philipp and Micha to Travemünde to meet with them and their family together with other acquaintances to exchange experiences at the end of their long-term travel once again. Of course, we also wanted to take a look at the local environment of Travemünde.

After having had a lovely breakfast, we went along the Trave to its mouth to the Baltic Sea on the promenade of the Trave river together with Micha, then crossing the sandy beach direction to the cliffs.

At the delta of the Trafe we found lots of sailboats, pilot boats and the lifeboats of the German Association for Rescue Shipwrecked, next to a passenger ferry to the dune path leaves from here.

The beach promenade along the Baltic Sea with its wide sandy beaches was built from 1898 to 1899 and was inaugurated in 1904. The special atmosphere results from the generous dimensions and the view of the bathing activities and the international ferry traffic.

From late 2010 to mid of 2012, the beach promenade was partially provided with a storm-proof substructure of asphalt and granite paving. What remains until today, are the wrought-iron railings between the promenade and the beach.

New additions are barrier-free beach access, children's play areas, a lakeside terrace and a beach bar. Then the promenade turns into the sandy beach on the steep coast, which is partially secured with strong boulders. We came across some human and some natural artwork that caught our eye off the cliffs.

The beach promenade at the North ends up the hill in the largely natural landscape of Brodtener bluff with the lookout Hermannshöhe or near the beach in a footpath to Mövenstein. Here you will also find a lot of flotsam, some tree trunks that were exposed to the water.

So the trunks have become works of art in nature.

Diligent hands have decorated the root system with sandy doll heads, made small stones faces and added seaweed hair.

Nature, too, tries to do "fine art".

This work of art, however, manufactured by human hand, was found on the steep coast.
