Pingelturm

The only lighthouse with fog bell.

Bremerhaven is a seaport. As such, its external appearance is naturally characterized by lighthouses. The most northerly lighthouse is located to the south of the entrance to the Caesar`s Lock which leads to the Caesar`s Harbor and Connection Harbor. This is the beacon „Caesar`s Lock East light ”, in the vernacular called „Pingelturm”. Its architecture is very attractive and the beacon is a veritable unique specimen with its external fog bell. Incidentally, the bell still operates when it is foggy. Then it rings four times in rapid succession. The lighthouse is simply unmistakable in its entire appearance. The red brick building with a height of approximately 15 m, dating from the year 1900 and conceived by the harbour architect Rudloff, is easily recognizable from afar at the dyke.
