There are several museums and bunkers on the cape, you can climb the lighthouse or walk along the high cliffs. An interesting story is connected with the bunkers, one of them has remained since the times of the Nazis, the second was built in the times of the GDR. In 1985, the book Soldaten des Volkes (Soldiers of the People) was published and there was an aerial photograph of the cape in which military buildings and bunkers were visible. How the photograph was allowed to appear in this book is not clear, but it was withdrawn from circulation again just three days after its publication. The original book is currently a collection edition.
