This is an old replica of a lighthouse. It is no longer used, however it is nice to see, and you get some really great views of the surrounding area. There is some seating and some toilets not too far away. There is also a...More

Arrived by cruise ship on a very windy and rainy day. We managed to reach the hill where Vippefyret is situated before the rains came down hard. It was extremely windy on the hill so we did not stay long. The walk through the small...More

The Vippefyr (tipping lighthouse) offers a great view over Kattegat and Skagen. It is lit once a year at bonfire night in June where a couple of thousand people show up.

I walked by this historical lighthouse on my way to Grenen. It's nice to look at and read its story if you happen to walk by but not a must see.

We went all the way up to this special lighthouse - Vippefyret - for the first time. We have never seen a lighthouse like this before, and it is an interesting concept, but not something you spend a lot of time with.
