For all those Europeans, who love those cosy New England

hotels, you finally don’t have to travel so far anymore! Til Schweiger, the movie maker of lots of «feel good movies» opened his first hotel at Timmendorfer Strand, along the Baltic Sea of Germany. As soon as you enter the hotel, you feel that light beachhouse flair. The rooms, most of them with balconies, are very much inspired by the Hamptons. Wooden floors, lots of natural materials, heavenly beds, give you the feeling of coming home, away from home. In the lobby & restaurant area you’ll find many intimate corners, lots of candles every morning and evening and yes, this is a hotel that sets on the fire of the fireplace every day, indeed! On the walls their are pictures of Til Schweiger and his family, of course our favourite was the cute little Emma.  Unfortunately we did not have the time to try Til’s famous Spaghetti Bolognese, one good reason for us to come back soon!
