About
Tahkuna Lighthouse is situated on the north end of Hiiumaa. The construction of the cast iron lighthouse began in 1873. The lighthouse is assembled of cast iron parts of so-called Gordon system. System is based on prefabricated details, that are easy to transport. That's the reason why this high tower was rather easy to build. Interesting to know:• Czaric Russia bought the lighthouse from the world exhibition of Paris in 1871.• It's the highest lighthouse in Estonia - 42,7 m above the sea level.

In my opinion this was the best of the Hiiumaa lighthouses. Amazing and beautiful view! Highest lighthouse in Hiiumaa from the ground level. Not very crowded as most of the tourists go to Kōpu. The climb up is also very nice, loved the structure and the interior :) There's also a small cafeteria next to the lighthouse.

All those Lighthouses are so extraordinary and one can feel the history. They could improve the little shop next to Lighthouse. Not so wide range of items and not helping to introduce the Lighthouse.

There are quite a few lighthouses on Hiiumaa but this one I like most because of its location. Being the northernmost on the island, it offers a wonderful view - especially if you happen to be there during the sunset and/or strong winds. I had some of my most stunning photos there - even if I had to fight with the wind to keep my camera in one place. Nature is perhaps THE asset of Hiiumaa, and this place really shows it.

Beautiful place with his own history. Not only great views form lighthouse - many interesting sights are situated around the tower. There are a monument on the beach dedicated to the children who perished in the Estonia ferry disaster in 1994...

Be prepared for many stairs. But the pain is worth it. Great view from the top is fantastic! There is also small souvenir shop and a toilet near. Ticket costs almost nothing!

It's the highest building of 3 main lighthouses on the island, though Kõpu lighthouse is located on a higher ground and beats Tahkuna of the total height above sea level. Loved the platform on top which you can see through :-)

We visited Tahkuna tuletorn in early July. The scenery was beautiful and the lighthouse is definitely worth the visit. Admission to the lighthouse was 2 euros. The small yard cafe was nice and the waiter was friendly. Only minus was the untidy outdoor toilet.
