Westerhever Lighthouse

Westerhever Lighthouse


Landmark of the Eiderstedt Peninsula

It is considered the landmark of the Eiderstedt peninsula in Schleswig-Holstein: the famous Westerhever lighthouse. The lighthouse stands on a dwelling mound in front of the village of Westerhever and has been in use for over 100 years. Even today, the 42-metre-high tower with a total of nine storeys is still fully functional. Construction of the tower began in 1906. Two years later, the beacon went into service. The surrounding houses, where the lighthouse keeper used to live with his family, are now home to the Wadden Sea Protection Station. The lighthouse can be visited from spring to autumn and can also be booked as a wedding location.
