The lighthouse is 30 m tall and still looks quite good from the outside.
Completely ruined crew house on the left. The picture on the right shows the rotten staircase inside the lighthouse. In the upper part even the steps are missing so that climbing on the banisters is required in order to reach the top of the lighthouse.
