Rubjerg Knude, Lokken

Rubjerg Knude stands as an abandoned lighthouse on the coast of the North Sea. Moving sands have begun to gradually bury the lighthouse, and it is expected to fall into the sea by 2023. There are paths around the lighthouse where you can hike, jog, or even bike. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing and protect your camera equipment as powerful winds can sometimes blow the sand quite strongly.

  • The trip from the parking lot and up to the old guy is long and difficult for walking, but is worth it. The outlooks of the coast, the North Sea and the country are great. At the same time, we recognize the power contained in the elements. Good trip and really good exercise.

  • When you approach the lighthouse, the first one sees, the big dunes that have moved past the lighthouse and are now eating the landscape behind the lighthouse. An incredible sight! From the parking lot there is about 1 km walk through the unique landscape before reaching the lighthouse. The last part goes over the dunes and through a little rubble from the former surrounding buildings, so it is not made with stroller or the like. The view from the top is incredible and the whole trip worthwhile. The old light source is replaced with a prism/kaleidoscope that gives a nice light inside the house, rather than bright from it.

  • 2017-11-12 - This is just a piece of extraordinary nature in Denmark. So if you are into that, it is great, but do not expect more than that.
  • Lighthouse on dunes. It looks just like at the end of universe. You can climb up and enjoy view to the sea and also back to pictorial landscape... all the other buildings (homes of lighthouse staff?) are down a loose bricks are used for signatures, love claims etc... definitelly worth to see. Hurry! I was told there is a demolition plan for this incredible but not functional object..
