Lønstrup is rich on experience for both sight and taste. It is a former fishing hamlet; and, though rough, the landscape surrounding Lønstrup is breathtaking with wonderful beaches and steep sand and clay dunes. Located by the water a little to the south of Lønstrup, is the lighthouse, Rubjerg Knude Fyr. Previously the church Mårup Kirke was also there, but it has been removed, because it was close to disappearing into the ocean.
Rubjerg Knude Fyr is a historical Lønstrup landmark. The lighthouse was built in 1899 and parts of its 23 meters are buried in sand, it is estimated to have disappeared into the sea in about 15-20 years. Every year, the sea eats away a couple of meters of sand away from under Rubjerg Knude Fyr – slowly, but steadily – so don’t miss the opportunity to see it while it is still there!
