The beautiful lighthouse, which is Sweden's oldest, stands majestically on the southern tip of the island of Landsort. Visitors are welcome to climb the lighthouse and discover its exciting history, and enjoy the view.
The wooden beacon which was here before the present lighthouse was mentioned as early as 1644. Even then, it is likely there had already been a beacon at Landsort for some time. The site of Sweden's oldest known lighthouse is at Falsterbo, dating back to the 1220s. At that time Falsterbo belonged to Denmark, which started building lighthouses along its shipping channels at an early stage. However, there are no preserved lighthouses predating Landsort.
