Show sight on map

The Kaiserschleuse Ost lighthouse is located at the entrance to the Kaiserschleuse in Bremerhaven. The tower was built in 1900 according to a plan by the port construction director Rudolf Rudloff (1851–1922), who also drew the Bremerhaven sublight. The height of the building is 15 m, the height of the beacon is 10 m. The lighthouse carries a fog bell, which was cast in 1950 by J.F. Weule in Bockenem am Harz. It is the northernmost historic lighthouse of the seaside city. At the north end of the container terminal, the two modern towers of the Imsum directional light line are still standing. In size and appearance, the Pingelturm is similar to the Moritzburg lighthouse, which is more than 100 years older.
