The lighthouse in Moritzburg crowns the end of a 50-meter-long pier on the Großteich in Bärnsdorf. Once built as a backdrop for re-enacted naval battles, today it has primarily historical value as Germany's second oldest inland lighthouse and is a popular photo motif.
The pagoda-like inland lighthouse is 21.9 meters high and built of solid stone. The appearance of the tower, whose facade is designed with an illusionistic facade painting of red rectangles, is reminiscent of North German brick architecture. Inside, a spiral steel staircase with 74 steps leads to the lighthouse.
From 2006 to 2007, the lighthouse was extensively restored and additionally equipped with a lighting system. This is switched on for special occasions. Visits to the lighthouse are possible within the framework of guided tours.
