    Everyone who is a guest in Cuxhaven, no matter whether they are holiday makers or hikers, knows the Kugelbake at the Elbe estuary near Cuxhaven-Döse. It is the landmark of the city and can also be found in the city coat of arms. From here you can watch the outgoing and incoming container giant excellent.

    The Kugelbake is the landmark of the city of Cuxhaven. The 29 m high naval mark was once used by the sailors as a guide. For the emigrants who left Cuxhaven for America, the Kugelbake was "the last corner before America."

    The classic and the landmark in Cuxhaven! You have to take with you in any case! Here, the shipping lane leads past the Port of Hamburg. You can watch large container ships or luxury steamer and seals are not uncommon to see!

    Nice view of Cuxhaven. Here you can watch the passing ocean giants (of course the smaller ships as well). Most impressive is the amount of ships passing here.

    The Kugelbake is a wooden navigation mark in Cuxhaven. The term bake goes back to the Middle Ages, in which all the navigational signs - including lighthouses - were so named. It is the landmark of Cuxhaven. A predecessor building still served as a lighthouse. It forms the seaward boundary of the Elbe, so the end of the Binnenelbe after the federal waterway law.
