Blåvandshuk Lighthouse

Blåvandshuk Lighthouse is located at Denmark's westernmost point. The lighthouse is 39 meters high, but protrudes due to its location in the dunes 55 meters into the air, which gives a fantastic view of the North Sea.

Blåvandshuk Lighthouse is probably the most eye-catching building in Blåvand with its 39 metre high lighthouse, which with its own rugged charm marks Denmark's westernmost point, Blåvands Huk. From the top, there is a marvellous view of Horns Rev and the world's largest offshore wind farm.

The lighthouse was built in 1900 to replace the old angle lighthouse from 1888. Thanks to its location on a high dune, the height of the light source above sea level is 55 metres. The light source itself is quite modest, consisting of a 1000 watt 220 volt electric light bulb. The amazingly bright beam of light, which can be seen 50-60 kilometres out to sea, is produced by a rotating lens device that also uses shielding to produce the beacon character, 3 flashes every 20 seconds.
