The lighthouse was build around 1910 close to the north sea.
In the last few decades more and more sand built up around this light house. The people there tried to fight against the sand, but it didn't help. They couldn't keep the lighthouse and put a museum and a cafeteria in the old buildings. But the endless fight against the sand seemed quite useless. In 1999 they finally gave up completely and gave the nature back what it demanded.
It is quite impressive and really worth a visit!
Directions: You can't miss it if you look on a map in the northern part of Denmark above Aalborg along the north sea coast.
