Cape Arkona Lighthouse

Local nameMarinepeilturm
LocationPutgarten, Germany

The Cape Arkona Lighthouse comprises two lighthouses and a radio navigation tower on the German Baltic Sea coast in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, with the international serial number C 1062. It is located on Cape Arkona on the peninsula of Wittow on the northern tip of the island of Rügen.

All three towers were renovated in the early 1990s and are open to visitors. In the old lighthouse is a museum with an exhibition on lighthouses and maritime rescue as well as an outstation of the local registry office. Here marriages may be commemorated on a small plaque in front of the tower. The radio navigation tower is used as an art museum and studio. On each tower is an observation platform, from where there are unimpeded views over the island of Rügen, especially the Wittow Peninsula. In fine weather, the Danish island of Møn may be made out.
