  • Unfortunately, we were early June there, in grey, rainy weather. From the car park at the info-Hus (charges apply) you can walk a beautiful round over the dike in an hour past the lighthouse. It is advisable to run this round against the clockwise direction. This is due to the stock climbing which leads through the salt marshes and breeding areas. This former route for the lighthouse keeper is released only in the period from June to September and can be walked in one direction only. The total distance was well accessible, but when it rains it may be very smooth on the stock climbed. The hike leads through an impressive Watts and salt meadows and is an impressive sight of the Westerhever lighthouse.

  • Good setting with beautiful light.
  • Before the dike at the car park, there is a kiosk and a business with original sheep articles. The best and most beautiful lighthouse in the world with wonderful environment ☀️

  • Each time when we make holidays in Sankt Peter Ording, we visit the blip lighthouse. It's always value. The salt marshes are beautiful and there are many sheep on the dikes to see. There's a wonderful freshness of the sea and a splendid nature. Also for photographers a must!
