We chanced upon this monument advertised as the oldest lighthouse in Germany during our afternoon outing to this seaside town not far from Lübeck. After being warmly greeted by the lighthouse keeper and having had a look at the multimedia maritime exhibit, we decided to go up to the top.

Our climb of more than 140 stairs was rewarded with a truly breathtaking view of the river and bay - we even managed to glimpse a historic ship making its way to the sea. We could clearly see the highrise Maritim hotel - which blocked the view somewhat and which was supposedly the reason for the lighthouse being discontinued a few decades ago. While we didn't make the tour offered on Sundays, we really enjoyed our visit, with the climb then justifying refreshments from the nearby Niederegger cafe.
