if you want to see west jutland’s landscape from above, you can do that only by flying over it. or by climbing countless steps up a lighthouses stairwell. which was what i have done: 159 steps to reach the balcony of “lyngvig lighthouse“, near hvide sande, western jutland, denmark. the climb is absolutely not recommended to people afraid of heights.
after a successful climb, the visitor will be rewarded with a breathtaking view over the sea and the nearby fjord. truly an unforgettable – and windy experience – especially for people afraid of heights.
lyngvig lighthouse was built on a barrier spit that encloses the ringkøbing fjord. the fjord is a large, shallow sound connected to the sea by a narrow inlet at hvide sande (white sands). the lighthouse was build in 1906 and is the last of it’s kind built in denmark.
