Rubjerg Knude, Lokken

Rubjerg Knude stands as an abandoned lighthouse on the coast of the North Sea. Moving sands have begun to gradually bury the lighthouse, and it is expected to fall into the sea by 2023. There are paths around the lighthouse where you can hike, jog, or even bike. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing and protect your camera equipment as powerful winds can sometimes blow the sand quite strongly.

    Having read previous reviews, I went in place that began the Golden Hour. The panorama is spectacular sand dunes, shame about the presence of some dark clouds that have somewhat limited the sunset. From the parking lot you have to walk about 10/15 minutes but worth it.

    A fantastic coastline, full of dramatic sand dunes. Well worth a visit all year round. The lighthouse itself is best to visit early in the morning if you prefer some chance of solitude.

    Huge sand dunes near the West coast of Denmark. Absolutely worth a visit, not the least to also see the lighthouse.

    Amazing scenery with the vast sand dunes and the abandoned lighthouse viewing the ocean. Don't forget to bring water on warm days as it gets quite hot and there is no possibly to purchase refreshments at the lighthouse.

    Very beautiful nature. What a view. Great to 'sail' down from the sanddunes. Amazing!
