Travemünde has had a lighthouse since 1529. The
current structure, which was erected in 1859, is the oldest lighthouse in the
Baltic and one of the tallest in the world.
You can visit the Alter Leuchtturm during
the daytime from April into October. Opening hours vary with the season, so
check with the tourist office during your visit.
