    If you drive up the Elbe from Lühe, you will pass this new lighthouse. A technical highlight for the seafaring industry.

    A new beacon for the Elbe.
    The directional fire line between the old Unterfeuer Mielstack and the upper fire Somfletherwisch marks the fairway through the Elbbogen for the Elbe uprunning ships near the Lühemündung at Stade.

    The new container and cruise ships are getting bigger and bigger, so that the directional fire line was no longer up to these gigantic heights. The historic Unterfeuer Mielstack had to give way to a more modern and higher Unterfeuer.

    The new sub-fire Somfletherwisch was rebuilt on a deep-rooted reinforced concrete foundation. The lighthouses consist of a steel construction with a diameter of about 3 meters. The lantern was rebuilt based on historical models.

    For fur seals: The directional fire has a visibility of 12.3 nautical miles and marks the course line 136 °. The identification of the underfire is "Iso 8s". This means that the fire burns in common mode for 8 seconds, 4 seconds on, 4 seconds off ...

    The red and white tower with circulating gallery and black conical roof stands on a concrete pedestal, directly on the banks of the Elbe.
    The new lighthouse replaces the historic Mielstack underfire. The new building was necessary because the light path of the Leuchtweg for the ever higher ships no longer true. The directional fire line marks the fairway through an elbow for the ships going up the Elbe near the mouth of the river Luhemünde.

    On the dike there are a number of benches that invite to rest.
    If you take your time, you can also watch large ships entering and leaving the port of Hamburg.

    The red and white striped, hexagonal steel lattice tower with a central tube and round lantern is 926 m from the lower fire, next to an orchard. A spiral staircase in the central stair tube leads to the lantern house. The tower is identical to the Grünendeich and Krautsand lighthouse.
