7. Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse, Denmark
On the coast of the North Sea in Rubjerg, the lighthouse is 60 m above sea level, stationed atop the sand dunes, Jutland. It was first lit in the 1900s, but had to be reconstructed even earlier, since the original establishment got buried under the sand. This is a great location for ocean-lovers and admirers of all things seamanship.
