    From the lighthouse, you have a very good view of the Priwall, the Passat and of course the Baltic Sea. The 142 steps are worthwhile in any case.

    Der Alte Leuchtturm Travemünde ist der älteste Leuchtturm Deutschlands.
    Um 1330 wurde er erstmals urkundlich erwähnt.
    1534 zerstörten dänische Truppen den Turm.
    1539 erbauten holländische Maurer den heutigen Leuchtturm.
    Das Leuchtfeuer wurde vermutlich zunächst als offenes Holzfeuer, später mit Hanföl-Lampen vor vergoldeten Hohlspiegeln betrieben.
    Der obere Turmteil brannte 1827 nach einem Blitzschlag ab.
    Er wurde im klassizistischen Stil erneuert und mit Petroleumlampen versehen.
    Ab 1903 leuchteten elektrische Bogenlampen, ab 1937 Glühlampen.

    Als technisches Kulturdenkmal wurde der Leuchtturm 1922 eingetragen.
    1972 musste das Leuchtfeuer ausgeschaltet werden, da der Neubau des Maritim Hotels den Turm verdeckte. 1974 wurde auf dem Maritim ein neues Leuchtfeuer in Betrieb genommen.
    2003/2004 wurde der Alte Leuchtturm grundsaniert. 12 000 Steine wurden bis zu einer Tiefe von 30 Zentimetern aus dem Mauerwerk, das bis zu einem Meter dick ist, heraus genommen und ersetzt. Zudem wurde die 600 Quadratmeter große Außenfläche komplett neu verfugt und der Turm auch innen teilweise neu verputzt. Für die umfangreichen Arbeiten investierte das Wasser- und Schifffahrtsamt (WSA) Lübeck 250.000 Euro.

    Der Alte Leuchtturm Travemünde ist 31 Meter hoch und beherbergt nun auf acht Geschossen ein maritimes Museum, das Einblick in die Geschichte der Leuchtfeuertechnik gibt. Zu sehen sind Modelle von Feuerschiffen, verschiedenen Seelaternen sowie ehemalige Lichtanlagen anderer Leuchttürme. An den Wänden hängen zahlreiche Fotos mit ausführlichen Informationen zu den Leuchttürmen, die zum Bereich des WSA Lübeck zählen.
    Über 142 Stufen führen die einzelnen Treppen in luftige Höhe. Auf der obersten Etage kann die noch funktionsfähige Anlage des Travemünder Leuchtturms mit 1000-Watt-Glühlampen bewundert werden. Die rund umlaufende Aussichts-Galerie bietet zudem einen einmaligen Ausblick über den Skandinavienkai und die Travemünder Altstadt sowie über die Lübecker Bucht bis Grömitz und über die Küste von Mecklenburg Vorpommern.

    The old lighthouse Travemünde is the oldest lighthouse in Germany.
    It was first mentioned in documents in 1330.
    In 1534, Danish troops destroyed the tower.
    In 1539, Dutch bricklayers built the current lighthouse.
    The beacon was probably initially operated as an open wood fire, later with hemp oil lamps in front of gilded concave mirrors.
    The upper part of the tower burnt down in 1827 after a lightning strike.
    It was renovated in the classical style and provided with kerosene lamps.
    Starting from 1903 electric arc lamps shone, starting from 1937 incandescent lamps.
    As a technical cultural monument, the lighthouse was registered in 1922.
    In 1972, the beacon had to be switched off, as the new building of the Maritim Hotel obscured the tower. In 1974, a new beacon was put into operation on the Maritim.
    2003/2004, the Old Lighthouse was refurbished. 12,000 stones were taken out to a depth of 30 centimeters from the masonry, which is up to a meter thick, and replaced. In addition, the 600 square meter outside area was completely grouted and the tower also partially re-plastered inside. For the extensive work the water and shipping authority (WSA) Lübeck invested 250,000 euros.
    The Old Lighthouse Travemünde is 31 meters high and now houses a maritime museum on eight floors, which gives an insight into the history of beacon technology. On display are models of light ships, various sea lanterns as well as former light systems of other lighthouses. On the walls are numerous photos with detailed information about the lighthouses, which belong to the area of ​​the WSA Lübeck.
    Over 142 steps lead the individual stairs in lofty heights. On the top floor you can admire the still functioning system of the Travemünde lighthouse with 1000 watt incandescent lamps. The all-round view gallery also offers a unique view over the Skandinavienkai and the old town of Travemünde and across the Bay of Lübeck to Grömitz and over the coast of Mecklenburg Vorpommern.

    The historic lighthouse of Travemünde has today no longer a naval symbol as a technical and architectural cultural monument, but is Travemünde together with the four-masted barque Passat landmark and museum.

    In its present form, the red brick tower was built in 1827 in classical style and has a height of 31 meters. It is divided by five cornices, has a small balcony at half height as a pilot lookout (formerly the pilots were on the lookout for incoming ships) and in the upper part a narrow, revolving platform.

    The Travemünde lighthouse has been out of service since 2004 and has served as a maritime museum for beacon technology ever since. It is 8 floors high, 142 steps.
    The first lighthouse that stood here was first mentioned in a document in 1330 and is therefore the oldest lighthouse in Germany. Danish troops destroyed this tower in 1534. In 1539 Dutch masons built the current tower. In 1827 the upper part burned down after a lightning strike. It was renewed in the classical style and provided with petroleum. Sezier 1903 electric arc lamps and incandescent lamps were in use since 1937.
    1922 title as a technical cultural monument
    In 1972 the beacon was switched off because the new Maritimhotel covered the tower
    In 1974 the Maritim got a new beacon on the roof
