The lighthouse from 1900
Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse
Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse is a gem in North Jutland, which can be dated back to 1900. The lighthouse is located on a cliff, and was in the old days used to guide ships safely around the West Coast, until in 1968 it became redundant due to newer technologies.
The cliff is just as quietly pushed further and further back, due to the forces of nature, and the lighthouse was therefore moved a full 70 meters further into 2019, which was covered far and wide by the media both at home and abroad.
The beautiful sandbanks, the cliff and of course the fine lighthouse are a hugely popular destination, and are without a doubt worth a visit when you are on a trip in North Jutland.

South of Skagen town is Råbjerg Mile, which is Denmark's largest hiking dune. The mile covers an area of as much as 2 square kilometers and it moves just as quietly through the landscape as it is said to migrate 15 meters to the north-east each year.
