Great views

The lighthouse in Hel is located in a forest with a beautiful surroundings. The 41-meter-high lighthouse in Hel was built in 1942. The previous lighthouse existed from 1826, but it was blown up during the defense of Hel in 1939. The lighthouse in Hel is a tower made of red-brown brick with a gallery under a conical roof. From the lighthouse tower, you can see the Hel Peninsula and even in good weather you can see the Tri-City. The views are great , but a little bit tight at the top. The light bulb can really make an impression. Currently it gives a beam of light visible from 31 km. The lighthouse in Hel is one of the tallest lighthouses in Poland.

I was there yesterday in the afternoon, nit the queue was huge so i decide to visit it today in the morning. It opens at 9am and I was there round 10, there wasnt a lot of people so I was satisfied with the view and everything.
The entrance is 7zł regular and 5zł for students etc.
The forrests around are amazing.

203 steps to the top
Aug 2019 • Family
Highest point in the island so it is a must to visit. View from the top is great. The climb is a bit of a workout and staircase gets tight at the top so becomes a bit of a traffic jam with people going up and down. Last flight of stairs is very steep and hence only for those able and we could not take our youngest less than 5 years old. Can get busy but worth the wait.

Very special

I have never been in such a grand building, the view from the top is not obscured and it has a funny efect meaning that it does not look that high when looking down but looks way too high when looking up.

Rent a bike and just let yourself get lost around the place. Start with the Lighthouse all the way to the Defense museum - 3 to 5 hours.... totally worth it.

Beautiful lighthouse

One of the attractions in Hel. If you are in shape and can climb hundreds of steps then go for it because once you get to the top the view of the peninsula is unbelievable!!

Wonderful Lighthouse
Aug 2016 • Family
The lighthouse does require a lot of climbing, but the stairs are even and new until the last few which are in the form of a ladder. It can also get a bit crowded at the top as there isn't a lot of space. Although you can't see the beach on Hel from the lighthouse, you can see the sea and get a nice view of the Peninsula, and even the shoreline of Gdansk on a nice day. I would recommend visiting if you have some time to spare in Hel. There is a small entry fee, I think 6 zloty, but the souvenirs in the gift shop are a good deal!
