Two lighthouses, one heart, one Dahme

The lighthouse in Dahmeshöved has been the landmark of the Baltic Sea resort of Dahme for over 100 years. And if you look closely, there are even two lighthouses that no longer only show the ships on the Baltic Sea, but also light the way for our visitors to their holiday homes. The Dahmer lighthouse is not only a maritime symbol and trademark of the community, but also the place that makes the wedding day really perfect. Saying yes to yourself, surrounded by confidants and high above everyone else's heads, creates an incredibly intimate and secure feeling. The Baltic Sea rushes in the background and congratulates with unique sea air and typical waves. For information on the use of the Dahmeshöved lighthouse as a special registry office, simply speak to the Meermacher at the Tourist Information or write us a message directly!

Due to the contact and distance rules that are not to be observed in the lighthouse as part of corona prevention, we are not allowed to offer guided tours until further notice.
