Very good view up to 50km, but during winter might not get outside. Tickets can be bought next to lighthouse

The weather was windy and quite cool, but we still went for a walk at the edge of the clif. There is a pathway. Went till the ligthhouse.

Student friendly ( student ticket cost 3 EUR). No elevator, so keep that in mind if you have problems with stairs because you have to climb a lot. But the view is beautiful

Vistit to the lighthouse was very interesting. Especially because of the ticket seller was knowledgeable and talkative. She shared useful information about the lighthouse and about the area over all. Great view and a nice walk up and down more than 500 steps.

Only a short climb to the top and you will be rewarded with stunning view to the Baltic sea as well as the surrounding nature.
