Tips

  • Söhni 🏃🇩🇪♥️🇺🇦

    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.

    So you can still visit the museum lighthouse today and take part in a tour of the tower. You can reach the round floors via a narrow spiral staircase and let yourself be taken back to the exciting times of beacons and lighthouses: From the gas cylinder and material storage you go to the duty room of the tower keeper with a bunk and of course to the most exciting floor, the lamp room with the 300/500 Watt bulb and belt lens. Here you have the perfect all-round view and are guaranteed to feel free and otherworldly. And right here in this room with its unbelievable view and dreamlike flair you can officially say “yes” at dizzy heights since 2002. What better way to navigate the storms and depths of marriage than with the help of a lighthouse? From Easter Saturday to the end of September:
    Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m
    Saturday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. (Source: visitcuxhaven.de/erleben Leuchtturm-dicke-berta)

    Anyone who visits or visits the Fat Berta should at least visit the new "Slim Anna". This was rebuilt in 1971. Actually it is not in Altenbruch, but in Cuxhaven Groden. The lighthouse is 59 meters high.
    Fat Berta was the lower light and Slim Anna upper light formed a leading light line with the Neufelder Deich lower light. More info at cuxland.de/poi Leuchtturm-dicke-berta
