Lighthouse Gedser

Description

Gedser Lighthouse
Started in 1802 as a tower with closed coal lighthouse which in 1834 changed to mirror apparatus. Tower increased in 1851 and fitted with fixed lens apparatus. In 1905 the tower was elevated again and the lens unit was exchanged for a rotary, bear glødenetsbrænder to kerosene. From the top of the 20 meter tall brick lighthouse you can see in clear weather Germany. Lighthouse located at the southern tip of Falster, specifically Gedser Odde, who is also Denmark's southernmost point.
