Along with Skagens Odde at the northernmost point of Denmark, Lindesnes was the most important landmark for navigation in and out through the Skagerrak.
  5. 5. Lighthouse station The cast iron tower at Lindesnes, at 16.1 metres, is not particularly high, but even so, the height of the light is 50.1 metres above sea level and it can be seen for 20 nautical miles (37 km) in clear weather. The lens is one of the largest known, a so called first order lens of French manufacture. Under extreme conditions the sea can wash over both the engine house and the tower.

  9. 9. Exhibitions FYRENES verden Med denne utstillingen ønsker vi både å vise fyrenes mangfold og å understreke at hvert enkelt fyr er en del av et verdensomspennende navigasjons- og kommunikasjonsnettverk: det første ”world wide web” Vi vil også påstå at fyrene tilhører verdens mest vennligsinnede byggverk: De er utelukkende reist for å tjene andre, for å redde skip, verdier og menneskeliv, og de er blitt bygget på noen av klodens mest værbitte og utilgjengelige steder om sikkerheten for de sjøfarende har krevet det Kanskje er det derfor mange av oss også opplever fyrene som vakre? verdens RAMINE FYR DIE WELT DER LEUCHTÜRME DIE LEUCHTTÜRME DER WELT Mit dieser Ausstellung möchten wir die Vielfalt von Leuchttürmen aufzeigen und hervorleben, dass jeder Leuchtturm ein Teil des weltweiten Navigations – und Kommunikationsnetzes ist: das erste ”world wide web”. Wir finden eigentlich, dass Leuchttürme zu den sozialsten Bauwerken gehören: Sie sind ausschliesslich erbaut zum Nutzen anderer: um Schiffe und Güter und Menschenleben zu retten, erbaut auf den wetterhärtesten und unzugänglichtsten Orten, wenn die Sicherheit der Seefahrer es erforderte. Kann es sein, dass wir sie deshalb so schön finden? Courdouan ist vielleicht der berühmteste aller Leuchttürme. Er wurde 1611 vom französischen König Henri III erbaut, um die wichtige Weinausfuhr von Bordeaux zu sichern. Cordouan ist bekannt als der Leuchtturm des Königs und der König der Leuchttürme, oder einfach ”das Versailles des Meeres”. Hier wurde 1822 auch die erste Leuchtturmlinse der Welt montiert. THE WORLD OF LIGHTHOUSES LIGHTHOUSES OF THE WORLD In this exhibition we hope to tell not only about the variety of lighthouses, but also to point out that every single one is a part of a worldwide navigational and communication network: the first “world wide web” We also hope to convince you that lighthouses are among the world’s most friendly constructions: They have been built only to serve mankind, to save ships, cargoes and human lives, Cordouan er kanskje verdens mest berømte fyr. Det ble opprettet av franskekongen Henri III i 1611 for å sikre den viktige vineksporten fra Bordeaux. Cordouan er kjent som ”Kongens fyr og fyrenes konge”, eller rett og slett ”Havets Versailles” Her ble også verdens første fyrlinse montert i 1822. FYRGRYTA_2000x1900.indd 1 - Riksvei 1 - Neset - Norges Fyr - Uthuset and they have been built onsome of the world’s most exposed andinaccessible places when the safety of those at seahas demanded that. Is that the reason that so many of us experience lighthousesas being beautiful? Cordouan is perhaps the world’s most famous lighthouse. It was built for the French king Henri III in 1611 to safeguard the important export of wine from Bordeaux. Cordouan is known as “The King’s lighthouse and the king of lighthouses”, or, more simply, as the “Versailles of the Seas”. This is where the world’s first lighthouse lens was installed in 1822. 15.06.11 13.25 - IBaugen - Bakrommet - Fyrgryta LINDESNES FYR 9

English aeroplanes torpedoed the German cargo ship M/S Palatia, without knowing that it was full of Russian prisoners of war. Almost a thousand men died. A monument has been set up to remember this tragic event. PALATIA LINDESNES FYR 19
