Rubjerg Knude, Lokken

Must see · Lighthouse · Tourist Spot
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.

  • This is a MUST SEE place if you are in northern Jutland. The setting is beautiful, and the whole story about that they had to move the lighthouse away from the edge of the dunes to prevent it from...  more »
  • The nature is tough but beautful. Try to be there on a day when it is windy. It is not pleasant, but very dramatic with sand in your eyes and understanding the powers of nature. Try to go to Nørre...  more »

  • A charming old lighthouse which is going to be moved in August 2019, as it's falling down. Free parking on the sand, around 1,5 km of walking far distance from the spot. Stunning view of the coast and the nearby sea! Bring a jacket as it's chill/rainy even in Summer and mind that dogs are not allowed to enter the lighthouse as it's dangerous for their paws (fine to bring them on the sand tho!)
  • Very interesting, they're moving the lighthouse about 85m back from the cliff edge. Work is in progress now and is scheduled to be completed in October. Plenty of sand, wind and sprinkles mixed in with the sun made the 1.6m walk fun. We even walked back a slightly different way to mix things up. We enjoyed this trip off the beaten path. Check it out.
