With its huge eye, Lyngvig Fyr has seen a lot. The lighthouse was built after a catastrophic stranding, the big ships used the lighthouse to sail safely through the unsafe sea. The lighthouse has seen how cities developed and how factories and houses were built. It saw how farms were built and how others were abandoned. When the eye of the lighthouse was forced to close, German and English planes flew by and when the eye could see again, it saw the bunkers along the beach. When the eye looks out nowadays, it sees tourists bathing in the North Sea and the beach is no longer used for bunkers, but to build sand castles.
Follow the footsteps of the lighthouse master, who has left his mark on the winding staircase in the lighthouse and experience the fantastic view of the sea and the fjord.
