Hanstholm Lighthouse, in Thy National Park

Hanstholm Lighthouse...
The lighthouse was built in 1843 and converted to electrial power in 1889. It was the first dioptric light in Denmark, and for a while the world´s most powerful lighthouse!
At 65 metres above sea level, it is the most elevated of the country´s lighthouses and visible far out at sea.
The lighthouse is open to the public and affords a breathtaking view to the horizon, in all directions.

 In the buildings next to the lighthouse, artists can stay, if they qualify for the program " Artists in residence".
