The Buried Lighthouse

Though it's not the most urban spot we've ever featured on this blog, the Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse is so unusual, we just had to share this story anyways.

First lit in 1900, this lighthouse located in Northern Denmark hasn't been in operation since 1968, when it became a museum. In 2002 the site had to be abandoned due to shifting sands on Lønstrup cliff, which slowly buried all the surrounding buildings and most of the lighthouse itself. What remains above the barren landscape stands as a modern ruin and a reminder of the power of time and nature.
