First lighted in the night of 14/15-10-2010
She stands near the source of the Rhine at a height of 2046 meters above sea level, and is scale model of the former Hoek van Holland low light (now placed near the Rotterdam Maritime Museum)
A ship called "Rheinquelle" sails now from Rotterdam over the Rhine to Basel, making stops on her way to inform and entertain the public.
In August 2012 she will be cut to pieces in Basel, transported by road to the Oberalppass, to be welded there to one piece again and open on 01-08-2013 near the lighthouse as a museum and restaurant.
