Norway's oldest lighthouse and southernmost point

Make a quick tour or stay several days. The culture, weather, water and nature are breathtaking!

Lindesnes Lighthouse is a modern museum, open all year round. The spectacular location where the sea meets the Norwegian mainland is a popular photo stop, but you will also find accommodation and food here. Lindesnes Lighthouse is surrounded by beautiful landscape, right by the sea, often with storm and big waves. Scenic hiking paths connect to the lighthouse.

The lighthouse has 350 years of history, and it opens a window onto the long maritime history of Norway to the visitors. You can learn more through the films and exhibitions shown.

Norway's first lighthouse was lit for the first time in 1656. Sailing ships travelled along the Norwegian coastline because of the safe natural harbors here.

At Neset, the powerful currents at the tip of the Norwegian mainland, often coupled with strong wind and stormy weather, caused many dramatic shipwrecks and groundings in the area. This is part of the history told at Lindesnes, and also the inspiration for the menu and products offered at the shop and the café onsite.

Spend a night at the lighthouse! Be there to watch the sunset, let the waves lull you to sleep and wake up to the sound of seagulls. Just like the lighthouse keeper's family once did. The lighthouse apartment is available for hire year round. It accommodates up to six people, and has a fantastic view of the sea and the horizon.

The information center and museum shop welcome you onde you arrive at Lindesnes Lighthouse. There you can buy tickets to the top of the lighthouse.

The ticket includes access to a number of experiences, outdoors and indoors exhibitions, film showings, gallery of local artists, cafe and beverage/museum shops.

A visit at Lindesnes is a meeting with the ocean, and this is the inspiration behind all the stories told there. Their specialty is products of the sea. Seawater is even used in various products sold at the lighthouse, from soaps to schnapps. It is also a key ingredient in the well-known "fyrbrød" or lighthouse bread – made of seawater and seaweed.
