Kihnu lighthouse

Kihnu lighthouse is situated on the southernmost tip of Pitkänä peninsula. It was brought here in 1864 from England, dismounted, and was reassembled on site. It is one of four cast iron lighthouses that remain standing on our shores. The tower is white, conical in shape and equipped with a lamp locker and balcony. The height of the light from sea level is 29 m.
Did you know...? The lighthouse was built at the same time as those of Vormsi and Virtsu and is externally similar to them.

NB! The lighthouse is temporarily closed for renovation, but from 2019 it is possible again to climb the tower and admire the beautiful views of the surrounding area.

  • Classic iron lighthouse, beautiful view

    Nice old iron lighthouse, view from above is spectacular since Kihnu is rather flat island. It was made by the Tividale Company from Tipton, Staffordshire, Great Britain and built at the southern tip...
