Description

Lyngvig Lighthouse

Hvide Sande

This 38 meters tall and slim lighthouse was built in 1906 at Holmlands Klint to fill the more 100 km large "gab" between Bovbjerg lighthouse and Blåvandshuk lighthouse. It is built on a concrete foundation, while the tower is built of brick and concrete/kvadre. The tower was plastered and then whitewashed white.
