lighthouse Falsterbo

Lighthouse Falsterbo in June 2005. The tower of bricks stands at southeastern tip of Sweden, middle in a good frequented golf course directly by tee 15. That's why: take care and duck!
The lighthouse was taken out of operation in 1990, but in 1993 it was lit again. Fortunately, because of Falsterbo is the oldest known beacon/lighthouse site in Scandinavia. The lighthouse replaced in 1796 the charcoal-fired tilting light. Since 1935 the tower is a listed building.
