The lighthouse of Bremen may fall into the sea; Read viral

  • A famous lighthouse in Bremen, Germany has started to lean to one side.
  • Boats have been prevented from entering the river at Bremerhaven.
  • The company that manages the port plans to dismantle it.

A famous lighthouse in the northern German port city of Bremen has begun to lean to one side and could soon fall, officials said Thursday.

The head of the water police, Uwe Old, told Radio Bremen that nothing could be done to save the lighthouse.

“Unfortunately, I think the tower will be history in the next few days,” he said.

Due to the danger posed by the leaning lighthouse, which is located at the end of a stone pier that has been in need of repair for a considerable time, the Bremerhaven authorities have prohibited ships from entering the Geeste River.

However, port operator Bremenports said it hoped to allow commercial ships to enter again in the near future. The firm has advanced that they will dismantle the lighthouse during the weekend in case it does not fall on its own, with the intention of rebuilding it in the same way.
