Description

Stevns Lighthouse

The first lighthouse at Stevns was built in 1818 by Poul Løvenørn the end of the lighthouse's building inspector who was on top of Stevns Klint. It was not a tower, but merely an extension. In 1878 entered this a new 27 meter high lighthouse. The lighthouse is built of limestone in a 1/2 feet tall granite plinth. The tower is then jointed, plastered and whitewashed. But the old lighthouse from 1818 still stands beside the new lighthouse.
