We had a short visit here during an overnight stay at Hirtshals. Walking from the city centre you will get here in about 15 minutes. There is a small fee for entering the lighthouse, and that is cash only (I think about 20 kr for each person, so bring some change - they accepted Norwegian, Swedish and Danish krone, maybe... More

this was a good visit, walking around for the bunkers hidden in the grassy cliff under the lighthouse and climbing to the top of the tower to watch the panorama.

Great place with magnificent view over Hirtshals and the North Sea, and the bunkers of course, truly charmig. Small entrance fee, DKK 20 for adults. There's a cafe and a picnic area too.

I kept going back for the wonderful cake offered for sale by the volunteers working at the lighthouse. They also have a generous (filter) coffee service with several tables indoors, and with a couple of power outlets I made this my office for a few hours, enjoying coffee, cake and free wifi. Though there is a currency conversion table glued... More

Worth the visit for sure. Light provides a great view of area. No English interpretation signs. Good view of WW 2 bunkers from the top.

Maintained by local volunteers, this lighthouse provides an excellent example of a functional lighthouse. With access all the way to the walk around area at the top the views up & down the chest are super. Don't forget to leave a bit of money in the box to help maintain this excellent spot!

The lighthouse was impressive, and the areas around very Nice for walking. You have to have cash for paying the fee for entering the tower. We didnt have cash.... Unfortunately for us.... There is also a machinery room without an entrance fee.
