The lighthouse can be seen from almost anywhere in Warnemünde - and from 30 metres up inside the lighthouse you can see almost all of Warnemünde. Built in 1897 as a navigation aid for those at sea, not only does it help ships find their way to the safe harbours, but thanks to the committed volunteer lighthouse keepers it has also become another attraction in the Baltic Sea resort.

At its base, a commemorative plaque at the former pilot station keeps watch and written on it is “The last house before Denmark”, in memory of the Great Flood in 1872. The jetties, which protect against the powerful force of nature, line the harbour entrance.

Opening times: Eastern to the beginning of October: 10am - 6.30pm each day
