The farm complex includes a 1625 smokehouse, a farmhouse, a sheepfold, a croft and an outside kitchen. The marsh house is a copy of the original seventeenth-century house farming equipment from the marshes. The museum also includes a reconstructed old windmill. (Bremerhaven Touristik)

The unmistakable beacon “Kaiserschleuse Ostfeuer” is simply known by locals as the “Pingelturm”, because its nineteenth-century fog horn makes a truly unique sound. (Bremerhaven Touristik)
Simon Loschen Lighthouse
