Altenbruch Harbour

Altenbruch Harbour
A small harbour with about 10 guest slips (floating docks) operated by the Altenbruch Sea Sports Club. It is not possible to approach the harbour one hour before and one hour after low tide, since it dries up. The ground consists partially of hard sand, which does not allow keel yachts to dig in. As a result of this, the harbour is mostly suitable for flat-bottomed boats. The harbour can be approached by following the path defined by the channel markers; the navigable water leading to the docks runs east of the channel marker line. Attention: The ships that pass close by the harbour cause a strong current, among other dangerous conditions. Water hookup in the harbour, power hookup at the docks. There is one slip facility available. The guest docking fee must be paid on the dock (letterbox). Village centre with shopping is about 2 km away. www.asv-altenbruch.de

Excursion destinations
A peaceful green embankment with beach wicker beach chairs, toys, and a beach promenade promise a relaxing time. The museum lighthouse ‘Dicke Berta’ (Fat Berta), a white steel tower at the harbour, is out of service and is now a museum that is run by volunteers and open to the public. ‘Dicke Berta’ still helps with navigation to this day: The little tower guides couples into the safe harbour of matrimony. Many choose to say ‘I do’ in the light room, which offers a breathtaking view of the Elbe Estuary). www.dickeberta.de
In addition to its extensive archive, the submarine museum features two storeys of artefacts on display. The St Nikolai Church is among the oldest and largest churches in Cuxhaven. Its 500 year old Klapmeyer organ is one of the church’s greatest treasures. Tours and concerts: www.orgelstiftung.com
