This is one of the most famous lighthouses in Germany, but fame came through a german movie from 1989 "Otto – Der Ausserfriesische" by and with the frisian cemedian Otto Waalkes. In the movie the lighthouse was his home.

The lighthouse was build 1888-1889 to secure ships sailing the Emshorn channel and was in use until 1915 because of WW I. After the war the channel wasn't in use anymore and it was the end of the lighthouse.

1962 it was sold to the Lower Saxon Bauamt für Küstenschutz and 1972 it got the famous yellow-red striped coloration.

Today it's open for public and it's also used for weddings.
