Das Rubjerg Knude Fyr (deutsch Leuchtturm Rubjerg Knude) wurde am 27. Dezember 1900 an der dänischen Küste von Rubjerg Knude hinter einer damals nur zwei bis drei Meter hohen Düne zusammen mit vier Nebengebäuden, den Wärterhäuschen, eingeweiht. Er sandte alle halbe Minute einen langen weißen Lichtstrahl und anschließend zwei kurze Blitze aus. Dieses Signal konnte bis zu 42 km weit wahrgenommen werden.
Enjoy this lighthouse while you can - standing on the edge of the coast it is a breathtaking place to see :)
Perhaps Denmark's most hostile place. As you walk to the lighthouse you'll feel the sand blowing in your face at 40km/h (if not more), so be sure to bring some sunglasses and a cap! Once you get to the lighthouse you'll truly feel like your are out of this world, with the sea on one side and the dark wooded horizon on the other, plus a landscape that looks more like Arabia than Scandinavia. The lighthouse visit was brief; the iron stairs were a little dated but worth climbing as they'll probably vanish in the next ten years! Caution is nevertheless advised. I could say a lot more, but put it simply, I'd recommend this place to anybody who's ready to try a completely new extra-Scandinavian experience!
Great place to visit, though coloured by the great weather! The views are amazing, with good parking. The house itself will fall down soon, so quickly go visit it!
Beautiful place totally different of Copenaghen, you have huge beach of golden color sand, with fares, small restaurant with specialities, traditionals dishes, we met some people launching eggs to a man's face because he will get married, it was a traditional game. People are very friendly. The weather is very cold, think of a big and efficient coat
Tower can be visited for free. You can still see some leftovers from the museum that was there before nature dismantled it. Extremely fast winds are blowing from the sea taking lots of sand with it. You will feel that on your way from the parking to the lighthouse. We had sand in our hair, ears and trousers after this trip. But it is still worth it.
Beautiful place to visit if you have some times to spare. Endless beach and a wonderful view. Would definately recommend.
You have to do a little walk! We parked at "Rubjerg Gamle Kirke" and crossed the whole dune. It's been beatiful but quite exhausting walk in the strong wind we had. You will be sandblasted, if there is much wind. So take care of your cameras with zoom or so ... they will be destroyed by the fine dust. The view from the top was stunning. We loved that
Was windy and cold, but awesome views, very nice place to feel Denmark. One of the best experiences this March for our family
If you are in this area of Denmark you must see this! Walkpath from the parkinglot. Restroom. Little hotdog kiosk. Bring sandals. Only sand! For KIDS!!! Bring sunglasses, caps... it is often very windy on the way up and children gets sand all over there faces. Difficult bringing stroller, it works half way and then you must leave it.
Its a stunning place to be honest. But the place might be most fun to visit if you've been there before or plan to come again as the changes that happens from time to time is the most awesome to watch.
I wasn't expecting anything so great, but was actually very surprised. We were able to go up in the lighthouse and the view on the coastline was beautiful. There is the path to go from the parking but at some point there is no path to go to the lighthouse, just sand.
Fantastic spot! You are able to go up into the tower, so the view is amazing
Very nice place. You have to visit this place. Very beautiful dunes and klif.
Outstanding views from the top but the way up is not easy if you're scared of heights. If you've gone you'll understand!
Every bit as spectacular as all the pictures you might have seen. The dune is big and constantly moving, you can feel the fine sand hitting your face, an indication of the dune's slow movement. The lighthouse is on the edge of high cliffs with the dune all around it. There is a little bit of bricks and other remnants strewn around right under the lighthouse. The approach road has tall grass and tough, thorny bush growing all over. There are flocks of sheep grazing. When the sun is out, you can see them clustered under the stubby trees. From the car parking area, there is a tractor-pulled trailer that will transport you to the dune and back for about 50 Kr.
It's a cool place to see. Personally I onjoy the sand dunes more than the lighthouse. Really fun to run around and jump in the sand. Well managed parking with toilets. You have to walk like 1 km to get to the dunes from the parking lot. You can walk up to the top of the lighthouse using stairs on the inside.
Totally unique. Come 1-2 hours before sunset. Make sure your phone or camera is fully charged. You will take hundreds of pictures.
Very scenic place - sand dunes moving in over the land, the lighthouse in the middle like a scene from a movie. You can climb up to the top of it, but anyone with fear of heights beware as the stairs inside are made of (what feels like flimsy) perforated steel sheets - so you can see through them down below as you climb. Also nothing for young kids - at the top it was really windy with a fairly low fencing.
If you visit northern Jutland this site is a must see! It is a very raw experience where you get a real sense of what nature is capable of. The lighthouse is on the brink of falling into the ocean due to the constant erosion of the beach. The view of the surrounding landscape and ocean is absolutely incredible.
