A mole is used as a breakwater and a harbour wall, which is often expanded on the protected inside as a dock for boats and ships.
Today eastern mole is an extension of the earlier, short and wedge-shaped pier, and the marina Hohe Düne is situated at the east side.
It wears a light beacon on the pier head, just like the western pier on the other side of the harbour entrance. This facilitates incoming ships the entrance to the port of Rostock.
Today's 12m tall form with red tower (red = port side, left when entering) was built in 1998.
The cache position is at the end of the east mole. It is not at ground level, not between the stones und of course not in the water.
