Westerheversand lighthouse


The Westerheversand Lighthouse (German: Leuchtturm Westerheversand) is located in Westerhever, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Considered to be one of the best-known lighthouses in northern Germany, it was built in 1908. Its cast iron tower is 40 metres (130 ft) high. The lighthouse is often used for weddings, and one of the two keeper's cottages has been adapted for use by the local registrar.

The tower has been open to visitors since 2001.
