Lindesnes Lighthouse

Lindesnes Lighthouse can be found at the southernmost point of Norway and is, perhaps because of this,  probably the most famous lighthouse in Norway. It lies at an altitude of 50.1 metres above sea level, is 16 metres in height and its light can be seen at a distance of 17.7 nautical miles. Lindesnes Lighthouse has been in its current form since 1920 and its older counterpart can be seen just a few dozen metres away. The first lighthouse was lit in this place in 1656.

During World War II, the lighthouse was used by the German army because of its perfect position for observing naval traffic in the area.

The lighthouse is still functional, and you can find a museum in it.
