    On the viewing platform at the Alte Liebe there are enough benches on two floors to "watch ships" together with others, as it is affectionately said here.

    The Alte Liebe is an investor with viewing platform in the port of Cuxhaven. It is located on the upstream boundary of the Cuxhaven harbor to the fairway of the Lower Elbe. From the investor, the ships leave in the direction of the islands of Neuwerk and Helgoland and to the seal banks.

    The building was built in 1733 by the sinking of three disused ships at this location. The ships were surrounded with stakes and filled the spaces with stones and bushes. The goal was to fortify the damaged by storm surges harbor and secure the Great Beacon, which then marked the harbor entrance.Later the Alte Liebe served as a jetty and was regularly renewed. In 1982, the building was converted into a pure viewing platform, at the same time the ramshackle wooden piles of the substructure were replaced by a reinforced concrete structure. Above it is a wooden two-storey pile dwelling, from whose gallery visitors can watch the navigation on the Lower Elbe. From April to October, between 10 am and 7 pm, visitors will be informed via a public address system about the size and origin of the passing ships. (Source Wikipedia)
