Simon Loschen Lighthouse

One of the most famous landmarks of Bremerhaven.

The oldest mainland lighthouse on the North Sea coast is still in service today and certainly one of the most beautiful lighthouses anywhere. It was built in 1853 by Simon Loschen, the architect of the Mayor Smidt memorial church. The lighthouse is a successful synthesis of the architectural styles of North German brick Gothic and concessions to the requirements of the age of technology. The lock leading to the New Harbor is located below the lighthouse.
