We spent an afternoon walking around the area, the view over the ocean is great and the locals seem to hang out there a lot during the weekends. Overall, a nice attraction to visit when you're in Cuxhaven :)

Nice visit to Alte Liebe - we came just when a big Maersk ship came by - an impressive sight from the ground. The lighthouse was fine as well although it was a bit small.

This is the place to stand and watch the great container ships travel up and down the Elbe/North Sea. You can almost see the Captains face they are so close. Fascinating

I love the Trip Adviser App! We are coming by the pier and beach as we enter the Kiel Canal. Using binoculars, we see the shore line and make out the others looking our way. Sort of a reverse review! It's a beautiful view, of...More

So they view from the old pier is okay but there are some other cool things to see! A memorial to German navy men who died clearing underwater mines, a big red fire fighting ship, and best of all the old school Semaphor that was...More

Everyone that visits Cuxhaven automatically goes to see "The Alte Liebe" From there you see cruise ships and huge container ships. It is an amazing place. Bring your camera.

Today was 55 deg F, sunny, little wind - beautiful afternoon to do a quick visit here. Nicest weather I have seen so far on my trip.

You can see all the ships going to Hamburg from a very short distance. No entrance fees, interesting for children.
