Rainy day in Skagen led us to this beautiful old lighthouse and keepers house that were being remodeled. Plate on the lighthouse dated it to the late 1800's. Great photo spot at a gorgeous location on the beach, definitely worth a stop!

sadly under renovations but very much a feature on the surrounding scenery and visible for miles around (as you would expect with a lighthouse!) We plan to return to Skagen again in the near future so hopefully will be able to visit properly.

Too bad it was under some construction at the bottom, and we couldn't go inside and to the top. But it's worth seeing from the outside, especially being so close to Grenen, you can walk along the seashore until the very tip of denmark if...More
