The Priwall Peninsula (German: die Halbinsel Priwall or Der Priwall) is a spit located across from the town of Travemünde at the Trave River estuary, on Germany's Baltic Sea coast. Since 1226 it has been administratively part of Travemünde, itself controlled by Lübeck.
The southern part has been designated a nature reserve (Naturschutzgebiet Südlicher Priwall). The Priwall is the eastern terminus of a bicycle path, opened in 1995, that begins at the Danish border at the town of Kruså. More famously, it is the northern terminus of the former inner German border, and a few remnants of the border fortifications have been preserved near the beach.
