    The little brother of the big lighthouse. Definitely worth seeing in a corner where Hiddensee is still Hiddensee

    Beautiful little lighthouse in Hiddensee National Park. It's actually not a lighthouse, but a beacon. You can get to him on a hike through the heath. We recommend.

    Take a look at my tour and you'll see where the photos were taken.

    After Hiddensee, the island to the left of Rügen, you can take the steamer from Stralsund or from Schaprode / Insel Rügen. Private water taxis also drive from Schaprode.

    When hiking in the heath, be sure to bring mosquito repellent, long clothing and sturdy shoes. Do not forget head protection, I was pretty stabbed despite the precautions, only had no mosquito repellent. Worth it.
    But it is very nice on the water without mosquitos. The water temperatures depend quite a lot on the wind. When the wind is offshore, the warm water on the surface is driven out to the Baltic Sea, the water is then quite "fresh". When the wind is onshore, the warmer water stays on the beach.

    This is a small beacon in the south of Hiddensee.

    The Gellen lighthouse built in 1905, a cross-brand light, is located in the village of Neuendorf in the south of the island of Hiddensee, hence the name of the southern lighthouse. The tower, which is only 12 meters high, consists of iron segments painted red and white, which were erected on a stone base.
    It is the smaller of the two lighthouses on Hiddensee, hence also called the Small Lighthouse. Its fixed light flashes evenly in the dark and shines within 360 degrees. The signal is used by coastal shipping to control the Gellenstrom fairway coming from the Baltic Sea to the Hanseatic city of Stralsund.

    Beacon south of Hiddensee. Shortly afterwards the national park begins.
    The ruins of the Gellenkirche are now in the Baltic Sea.
