Westerhever lighthouse

The lighthouse is the main landmark on the Eiderstedt peninsula and an important navigation aid for shipping. The red and white striped tower and the two former keepers' houses are a stunning sight.

Signpost on the horizon
Standing in splendour on a sandbank is Westerhever lighthouse, flanked by two former keepers' houses. Today a popular landmark, it was built to guide shipping through the treacherous sandbanks off the Eiderstedt peninsula and into the Heverstrom. The red and white striped tower has 157 steps. From the top there are panoramic views of the Eiderstedt peninsula and the islands off the North Sea coast.

The historical grocery shop in Tetenbüll has a beautifully restored interior and is believed to be Schleswig-Holstein's oldest rural shop preserved in its original location. Visitors to St. Peter-Ording can learn about the development of amber, the "gold of the north", and the ways in which it is worked.
