The lighthouse keepers´ house

The lighthouse keepers´ tasks included maintaining the beacon and lighting equipment, cleaning the structures and minor repair work. It was also the lighthouse keepers’ duty to deliver the Master’s letters.

Precise instructions were issued, particularly with regard to maintaining the lighthouse’s lighting equipment, as dirt and dust reduced the effectiveness of the lens. Smoking and all activities which might generate dust were strictly forbidden in the beacon area. The lighthouse’s beacon was normally lit at sunset and extinguished at dawn.

The Master’s and keepers’ houses still stand in the heart of the lighthouse community. The Master’s house offers accommodation and also it contains a small meeting space.
