Cold but great

Disappointing that everything was closed - especially as we'd walked for 2 hours to get here, but really the highlight was the wonderful view and the birds

...And that's all. Not very special. Inside the lighthouse nothing to see. Note: a senior won't climb.

Getting to this lighthouse, the highest in Sweden, was absolutely amazing. It is located on the sourthernmost tip of the Island of Öland (which means island-land in Swedish). The landscape in this entire region is flat so the lighthouse really stands out. During the tourist season, at least, the lighthouse is open to visitors, 197 steps straight up. From the... More

The drive alone is well worth the trip. Amazing UNESCO nature preserve with lots of birds. A the end of the island the lighthouse stands guard over a beautiful raw piece of land. It look out over a bay where seals like to come and bath in the sun. Not to busy and not to touristy. Good spot!

We decided to get off the rout we had planned to drive along this pretty island and we loved the scenery. And when we came to the light house it was fantastic and I was thrilled about this amazing part of the island. Bird watched love it.

It's always fun to visit light houses, and Långe Jan is on the Southern tip of Öland, which is worthwile a visit in itself! Combine with a hike in the meadows along the sea and visit Ottenby Naturum.

The admission is 30 SEK. But: Cash only (which is very unusual for Sweden!!) But you'll get a great view over that protected landscape/area & you are able to watch many birds = so better bring your binoculars :-) I'd prefer that lighthouse better, than the one on the north of the island (called "Lange Erik") ((kindly look @ my...

For 40 SEK you can climb to the top and have an amazing view (only worth if the weather is nice). There is a short trail around the lighthouse.

The area around the Lighthouse is nice and very special, you can even see the seals on the stones out side the coast. The lighthouse is an old building, build with bricks from and old chapel. It's the highest Lighthouse in Sweden and its possible to walk up and enjoy the view.
