  • The Lighthouse is very cute, but maintenance is missing and unfortunately you can not climb. There is a small museum and a beautiful park to visit.

  • Beyond that climb to the top of the homing beacon is best in winter or cloudy days of summer, the heat of the metal; the view is so great that it is worth. And not only towards the coasts or sea; also facing north are the lakes and streams in the fields, some of them unknown to most. Persons in charge when I went were very cordial and in all lighthouses to visit, I was always well attended by staff of the same.
