The city of Lubeck lies just off the north-eastern coast of Germany, 70km from Hamburg. The old city is on an island enclosed by the Trave river. From here, the river flows to Travemunde where it then flows into the Baltic Sea. Travemunde is situated on the mouth of the Trave in Lubeck Bay. It is a seaside resort and is also Germany’s biggest ferry port on the Baltic Sea. Following the bay clockwise from Travemunde, you can see the town of Neustadt in Holstein which is 30km north of Lubeck. Moving east from Travemunde is the town of Wismar and just north of that is Poel Island.

The chart contains a scaled up insert of Travemunde on the bottom right corner. The chart title tells us that it is taken from German government Charts to 1957. This piece is set on a gold background. It has a charcoal mount and a black frame. It has inbuilt surround lighting to enhance the 3D contours.
