    The outer harbor of Harlesiel is a nice starting point for hikes to Carolinensiel.

    The Harlesiel pumping station was erected between 1953 and 1957 and is the preliminary conclusion of a centuries-long embankment of hayloft. Today it separates the outer harbor and the inner harbor in Harlesiel and serves to drain the area of the Harlebucht. At low tide, the access to the Wangersiel is opened so that the harle can drain into the Wadden Sea unhindered. Today, the pumping station is controlled by an automatic measuring system, but in the past, a guard was responsible for the system. In total, the pumping station today drains an area of 22,000 hectares of land. Ships have the opportunity to pass the pumping station through the locks.

    It was interesting to look at the old building.
    Definitely worth a visit.
