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.

Rubjerg Knude Reviews
Turen fra parkeringspladsen og op til det gamle fyr er lang og besværlig for gangbesværede, men er det hele værd. Udsigtenud over kysten, Vesterhavet og landet er fantastisk.

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.
Når man nærmer sig fyret, er det første man ser, de store klitter, der har bevæget sig forbi fyret og nu æder landskabet bag fyret. Et utroligt syn! Fra parkeringspladsen er der ca. 1 km. gåtur gennem... more »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..
