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 lagoons. Good birding here at all times of year.

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 looked just like that in the 1800s? But never mind, we really enjoyed our walk... 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. When you stroll through it, you get a feeling of being in an open air... 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 went on purpose and spent 5 € for a bus (both ways from the city... More

this little town is easily accessed by public bus. There are quite a few beautiful old houses with traditional thatched roofs. When we were there, one of the houses was having its thatched roof replaced so it was interesting to watch. I'm not sure I'd want to be one of the residents with people snooping about.

Took a walk in the goth mind area which was a pleasant surprise. Only missing was a few hobbits as everything was looking like the shire - very clean and well kept. Some might say its a bit boring, but on a cloudy day in Lubeck this short trip was a welcome break.

We went to Gothmund for the birdwatching opportunities. The tiny fishing village is a most amazing place, brick built cottages with thatched roofs, amazing gardens and orchards. Then the 8.5 k walk along the river Trave and through the forest, along by the lagoons and back to the village. The birding was stunning, especially our sighting of a hunting sea... More

We actually set out walking from Lübeck toward Gothmund, thinking we'd catch a bus along the way. I think we walked about 7 kilometers and finally got to Gothmund, hoping for a backerei so we could sit and rest and enjoy the village with coffee and kuchen accompaniment. But alas, no bakeries of any sort: just a lovely little village... More

Not at all what we expected, but a wholly pleasurable experience. Walk along Fisherweg and you'll enjoy the quaint old houses with thatch roofs, the beautiful gardens, the views of the river and the artwork in the windows. A hidden gem.

Gothmund is about 15 mins drive from Luebeck. We've been living in Lübeck for a year now and finally took the time to come out and visit. We were not disappointed. There are no real 'activities' here....but you really don't need them for this type of a place. The village is small and very picturesque. Looking forward to returning when... More
