old and new lighthouses Travemünde

Lighthouses Travemünde in February 2001. In the foreground is the old tower, the oldest one of Germany. At the roof of the hotel in the background is the new fire, the highest German one. From here are only some steps to the breakwater with the mole-lighthouse, which looks very interesting at night because of its shining rings (glass tiles).
