BÜSUM – Büsumer Leuchtturm

A listed monument, the nearly 80-foot-high Büsum Lighthouse has been flashing its signal since 1913. The Royal Office for Aquatic Engineering (Königliches Wasserbauamt) was responsible for its construction and although the lighthouse was officially commissioned 30th December 1912, ten months were to pass before the signal light could be put into operation. Today, the lighthouse is managed by the Waterways and Shipping Office (Wasser- und Schifffahrtsamt) in Tönning and has been remote-controlled from a central control station there since 1976.
