The Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse sits 60 meters above the North Sea. Coastal erosion is a serious problem in this area. Each year, about 1.5 meters of the coast is lost. In 2019, the lighthouse was moved 70 meters inland to prevent it from falling into the sea. This doesn’t solve the problem but will keep the lighthouse safe until at least 2060.
