Description

Hirsholm


I 1886-87 opførtes det nuværende fyrtårn, som er 27 m. højt og bygget af granitsten fra Hirsholmene. Både det gamle og det nye fyrtårn er placeret på øens højeste punkt, det seks meter høje Ørnebjerg. Det gamle fyr er naturligvis ikke i drift mere, men eksisterer stadig og benyttes i dag som udkigstårn.
Den granit hvoraf Hirsholmene er dannet, og som fyret er opført af, var allerede i 1880 taget i anvendelse til Nordre Rønner og i 1884 til Lodbjerg fyr.
Det nye fyrtårn blev forsynet med et 1. ordens linseapparat med 5-vægers moderatørlampe. I 1904 blev brænderen udskiftet med en glødenetsbrænder til petroleum. Hirsholm fyr blev dermed det sidste fyr, som benyttede moderatørlampe
