Lighthouse on the Kullaberg
Kullens Fyr is the brightest lighthouse in Scandinavia and stands 78.5 meters above sea level at the very tip of the Kullaberg nature reserve near Mölle.On the northern entrance to Öresund, one of the busiest waterways in the world, beacons have been running for over 1,000 years.The current lighthouse was designed in 1898 by architect Magnus Dahlander from Dalarna. The 15-meter-high Kullens Fyr is built of gneiss and bricks and was commissioned in 1900. The three large lenses of the illuminator rotate four times per minute and emit three light signals per revolution. The light signals can still be seen 50 kilometers away.Incidentally, the lens apparatus also has to rotate during the day (unlit), since otherwise there is a risk that the lenses act like large burning glasses and the incident sunlight leads to fires.guidebook-sweden.com/de/reisefuehrer/reiseziel/kullens-fyr-leuchtturm-auf-dem-kullaberg
