  • Lindesnes Lighthouse marks the southern-most point of Norway. The complete system is well maintained and offers also a wonderful insight into the history. About construction, operation, and also the time during the German occupation are informative represented.

  • In South Norway must this lighthouse. Only the journey is a scenic pleasure. The view is unique and the wind as a constant companion is for me just to this lighthouse. The lighthouse area is subject to a charge, adults also a coffee in the price is included for 75 NOK. The Lighthouse is very interesting also for children. I always come for a visit.

  • This was a must see for our trip. We visited Nordkapp, the northern most point, so we felt compelled to visit the southern most point of Norway. It was a clear and calm day, so we did not experience w...  more »

  • I can't say enough how beautiful this place is and it's got a rich history and it looks so modern and yet old at the same time. I just loved it there
  • Great place with beatiful view. Be prepared for the sunset pictures.
  • Visited on 28th of April 2016 It's the most southern point of Norway and definitely worth driving 35 km off main E39 road. Not the best road (1-1/2 lane), but it will get you there. On your way there you will pass some small fishing settlement/s which are also worth the stop and taking pictures. Up on arrival I realized that access to Lighthouse was closed as they are closing at 17:00 so definitely check opening times before thinking of visiting. This did not stop me enjoying this place as Norway has beautiful and unforgiving nature. Experienced rough wind and rain that day but I think it just added the flavor to the place. Recommended for all nature and lighthouse lovers .
  • Hi: My great grandfather ( Carl Petterson Gahre Sr. ) was the light keeper in this lighthouse in the late 1800 into the early 1900. My grandfather and 4 of his siblings were born in this lighthouse. My great grandfather was transferred to other lighthouses on the coast of Norway. 10 children were born in the lighthouses in all. My grandfather ( Carl Petterson Garhe Jr.) then migrated to America through Ellis Island in his early 20's around 1919. He met and married my grandmother in Watertown NY. They had 8 children and settled in Brooklyn New York. This lighthouse is breath taking, must see.
  • Great place you must have seen. Most south light house and perhaps also place of Norway.
