Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse
In North Jutland, on the edge of the North Sea, you will find the famous lighthouse of Rubjerg Knude. The lighthouse was moved 70 metres inland in October 2019, to secure it from erosion, caused by the North Sea.
The small fishing village has with intention kept its charm, identity, and special atmosphere during the years. Surrounded by beautiful nature and Rubjerg Knude in the background, the town's streets twist behind the dunes and inland, between small houses and gardens.
Experience the town of art. Lønstrup is a charming little pearl located about 15 km from Hjørring right at the North Sea. It is well-known for its artistic touch and feeling since Lønstrup is a popular holiday venue for artists, craftsmen, actors and composers. Discover more about the art and culture Lønstrup has to offer.
The coast road, Strandvejen, in Lønstrup is strewn with glassblowers, potteries, jewellery artists and galleries – all inviting you inside to have a peek into their creative universe, hence the town also goes by the name "Town of the arts".
The village invites you to relax at the beautiful, calm beach, strewn with white sand. Lønstrup is a former fishing hamlet and, 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, the lighthouse, Rubjerg Knude Fyr, can be found. The historic landmark is certainly worth a visit for tourists as well as locals. Take in the breathtaking view and enjoy the salty winds near dunes or at the lighthouse's top. Constructed in 1899, the lighthouse has a long history, which today has left its mark as the 23-meter-tall building is now partly buried in sand but has been moved further in the country in autumn 2019 to protect it from the sea
