The Cape Arkona Lighthouse (German: Leuchtturm Kap Arkona) refers to two lighthouses and a radio navigation tower on the German Baltic Sea coast in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with the international serial number C 1062. It is located on Cape Arkona on the peninsula of Wittow on the northern tip of the island of Rügen.
Step back into another century as you become the “keeper” of this working lighthouse for a night or even a week. Built a mile offshore in Narragansett Bay, the lighthouse, which dates to 1869, runs on wind-powered electricity and is accessible only by boat: Be prepared to bunk an extra night (for free) if the weather doesn’t cooperate.
The three-story Holland Harbor light is on Black Lake and was built in 1907. It is covered with red steel to protect it from the heavy pounding it gets during rough weather. The current light tower was added to the top of one gable in 1936. Big Red sits on a pier that runs along the south bank of the channel connecting Lake Macatawa to Lake Michigan.
