Voslapp Range Rear Light (German: Voslapp Oberfeuer) is an active lighthouse and range light in Voslapp, state of Lower Saxony, Germany. At a height of 201 feet (61 m) it is the twenty-second tallest "traditional lighthouse" in the world.[2] It is located 4.3 kilometres (2.7 mi) south-southwest of Voslapp Range Front Light, behind the dike at the village of Voslapp, about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) north of Wilhelmshaven.

The tower is 4.5 metres (15 ft) in diameter. The lamp used is a 250 W lamp.

The Voslapp range lights replace a single lighthouse which was built in 1907.

The site is open, but the tower is closed to the public.
