Mountain Biking Highlight
The Campener lighthouse is a so-called steel truss tower. At 65.30 m, it is the tallest lighthouse in Germany. It was built in 1889 and since then its beacon has guided ships safely past Borkum into the mouth of the Ems. Its construction is similar to that of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and, like this one with its framework of riveted iron parts, was an architectural novelty at the time.
