This sits at the car park near to Vippefyret. However it seems a bit neglected. It wasn’t clear whether or not it was open, I didn’t even think to try and access it. Its nice to take some pictures of.

our group of 28 stopped by while on our private tour bus. This very old lighthouse is no longer in use, but is open to go up for the view. Nice place for photo ops. Worth seeing.

One of the most surprising place in North Jutland. We got there driving then walking for about 10 minutes. Dunes are moving along the sea with Det Hvide Fyr. Wonderful panoramic scenes and lots of fun climbing the dunes. Check out the sand near the...More

There is a fantastic view from the top of this old lighthouse. Sometimes there is even an art exhibition in the tower. You may climb to the top if you like.

the 210 steps is really worth it, the view from the top is just amazing. From here you can really see the "Grenen" and the city of Skagen

It's not that tall compared to other lighthouses so you are not going to get a great view but it's still a descent view and it doesn't cost you anything so it's worth a quick stop for the short walk up. From here you can...More
