lighthouse Ranzow

Lighthouse Ranzow on Rügen island in October 2001. On the way along the steep bank from Lohme to the Königstuhl ("kings chair" - a chalk rock) you pass close to the little iron tower. This tower was built by the firm Pintsch and has an identically constructed neighbour, at Kollicker Ort, some kilometres to the south west. The tower was removed in 2002. In October 2003 began the rebuilding in Arkona as part of an exhibition.
