Take a walk in the past
Blåvandshuk Fyr is probably the most eyecatching building in Blaavand with its appr. 40 mtr. tall light house, which with its own rough charm marks The Most Western Landmark of Denmark. Around the light house you find the hardly flattering concrete bunkers from world war two. The light house was built in the year 1900 as a replacement for the old angle light from 1888.
Due to its location on a high dune, the light source is placed 55 meters. above sea level. The light source it self is fairly modest and is supplied by an electrical light lamp of 1000 watts and 220 volts. The very intense light beam, which is visible from sea at a distance of about 50 to 60 kilometers is produced by a rotating lens, which by use the mean of various shields, generates the characteristics of the light, 3 blinks each 20 secs.
