Rubjerg Knude Fyr is a lighthouse between Lønstrup and Løkken (municipality Hjørring) in Denmark which was bulit in 1900. From the 1910s, the wind blew large amounts of sand from the cliffs and the actual dune formed between the lighthouse and the sea. The dune moved towards northeast and now has completely passed the lighthouse. Of the outbuildings only loose bricks remained. The lighthouse itself is expected to collapse soon. The Danish nature authority is planning to dismantle the building before it is going to fall into the north sea.
