If you’re looking for a beach holiday on the Baltic Sea and prefer small, family-run hotels to large tourist complexes, then the Hotel Sand is for you. This lovely beach hotel has around 50 rooms of different sizes and types. The modern interior design is excellent – full of colour and drawing on the textures of the beach and nature. Further highlights include the generous breakfast and the very friendly service delivered by the couple who own the hotel and their team. In the evenings, the hotel restaurant Kulinarium serves north German and international cuisine and in the summer there is a BBQ grill on the garden terrace. Beach Hotel: 7km of heavenly beach right in front of the door
If you want an uncomplicated beach holiday, there is no better place to stay. After breakfast, you can simply throw your towel over your shoulder, cross the road and slip between two dunes, where you’ll find yourself on a broad sandy beach on the Baltic Sea, popular with sea bathers for well over a century. The beach is 7km long in total and very clean. There are canopied beach chairs available for hire, a separate naturist area, numerous restaurants and cafes along the promenade as well as a water sports centre with a surf and catamaran school, complete with an area of the beach set aside for sports and games. Boutique Hotel: creative design and an intimate atmosphere
There is a wide choice of places to stay on the Timmendorfer Strand. What sets this hotel apart is the beautiful blend between the private atmosphere of a small, family-run hotel and the energetic style of a sophisticated designer hotel. The whole building is decorated in harmonious beach colours, giving an air of positivity. The decoration and furnishings are on the latest trends yet still draw on the natural surroundings: some of the lamps and accessories are made of flotsam washed up on the beach, including driftwood and rounded pebbles. Food and Drink: breakfast on the terrace and delicious organic food
The day begins with a tasty continental breakfast, eaten on the terrace when the weather is good. From Thursday to Tuesday, the hotel restaurant Kulinarium is open in the evenings. On the menu is fresh fish, various organic meat dishes and plenty of vegetarian options. In the summer, there is often a BBQ grill on the terrace. At lunchtime and on Wednesday evenings, when the restaurant is closed, there are plenty of great places to eat nearby. Sport and Leisure: beach and nature on the Baltic coast
The main attraction near the Hotel Sand is obviously the beach. A bicycle tour is definitely worthwhile and helps you get to know the beach and the coastal area better. There is a bicycle hire shop just round the corner from the hotel. You can find maps and tips on cycle routes in the hotel itself. If you need to while away a rainy day, the SeaLife aquarium, only a few hundred metres down the road, is a great day out. Location: between beach and promenade
The Hotel Sand is at the heart of the Timmendorfer Strand on the peaceful coastal road of Strandallee (Beach Street). It is only a few steps to the beach (around 40 metres). The centre of town, complete with the shops on the promenade, is around 500m away from the hotel.
