The Lange Anna

Lange Anna ("Tall Anna"), is a 47 metres (154 ft) high sea stack of Buntsandstein in the North Sea island of Helgoland, Germany. Formerly it was also known as Hengst or Mönch, but its real local name is Nathurn Stak (Northern Stack).[1] Climbing the stack is not allowed but tourists can look at the rock from a distance.

Lange Anna is somewhat similar to the Old Man of Hoy. In 1969 it was declared a natural monument.
