Pretty area with lighthouse to climb

There are 135 steps to the top of this 37 metre lighthouse, built 1897. Friendly guy encourages you to climb up. Good views from midway and from the top.

There is a staircase inside for those who are fit to climb the 135 steps to the top. The Lighthouse is next to a building called "The Teapot". The area around the Lighthouse is always... More

The view is the only reason to climb up the winding stairs for 2 euros. From up there, you can see the alstadt, the long promenade and the extensive beach. There is some information side about the lighthouse but only in german.

This is great exercise and the view from the top is the best. Rent a bike in town and ride here. Then ride down the strand.

This place is nice for a stroll around and sit outside and have a coffee. You can go to the top of the lighthouse which is more central to the town than on the seafront .not sure if there is an entrance fee as didn't go in.

There is a small entrance fee and over 120 steps in a very narrow circular staircase. Not recommended for anyone that has trouble walking or navigating around people. There are folks coming down the stairs while you are going up. It can be quite snug but worth the trek.

A lovely lighthouse is a focal point of Warnemunde beach. Around here you can find many restaurants and shops. Take a picture of the house or go up and take a picture from the top.
