    The "Dicke Berta" is a 13 meter high lighthouse in Cuxhaven's Altenbruch district. The tower was built in 1897 together with two other lighthouses, the "Slim Anna" and another in Neufeld. In 1983, the fat Berta was taken out of service and replaced by a new, modern lighthouse with automatic operation. As the fat lady was not lacking in charm, she was extensively restored by the members of the Förderverein Dicke Berta e.V. and is now a listed building.

    The Dicke Berta is an old lighthouse near Cuxhaven. He was in operation from 1897-1983. He was supposed to be scrapped, which was prevented, and marriages are being conducted today by the registry office.

    Of course, a short stop is worthwhile. From here you have the first time after (or the last time before the Kugelbake) an undisturbed view of the Elbe estuary.
    The pub right next to invites you to a little refreshment.
