The bus takes a while, but if you have nothing to do this is nice. Stroll among the houses, take in the scenery. You can go off to the left (facing the river) along the river and check out the surroundings. Don't expect too much,...More

Gothmund was a quaint little village, one piece of advice would be to plan and run around the village before the bus goes or spend a full hour walking the nature reserve. Bus is once an hour on Sundays and be warned there are no...More

You cannot drive by these charming little thatched homes near the water, but have to park by the street just above the historic area. If you walk to the left to the dead end of the street, there's a signposted footpath and then another signpost...More

Gothmund near the city of Lübeck - Travemünde is a cosy little village full of souvenirs backed by the “good" old times of fishermen and whalers. Cosy little houses offer a charming view back into history. Gothmund is situated directly at the river Trave and...More

Cheap public bus from Lubeck stops very close. The old fisherman's village has many thatched houses and the thatch (Phragmites) grows extensively here. Don't stop with the village but continue upstream on the good tow path and return via the goose path to circle the...More

Great spot for a peaceful walk to see the prettiest little houses. There's no restaurants or activities to do here (at least not that we saw), just a beautiful little village that seems untouched by time. Actually, it's probably a little too beautiful to have...More

The little village Gothmund is definitely worth a stop or at least a drive by from ship, since it is still a quite authentic fisher's village. The houses are neither sold nor rented out to anybody, but local families, so it keeps it traditional appearance....More

I mean, if you bike around the countryside, then by all means stop. If you have a car and can waste just a couple of minutes driving, do it. Also if you trek in the forest and happen on the village, it's OK. But I...More
