Most iconic building in Travemünde (belonging to Lübeck, Germany) is the Hotel Maritim. It is the only skyscraper in that area, surrounded by small buildings and located directly at the sea. When big ships enter the river Trave it looks like they are crashing into the building.
The hotel was built from 1970 on, has 36 floors and is 125 meters high. The building is also the highest lighthouse in Europe: on the roof a red/white beacon light is sent every four seconds.
