Lindesnes Lighthouse (Norwegian: Lindesnes fyrstasjon) is a coastal lighthouse and museum on the southernmost tip of mainland Norway, the peninsula Neset. It is also the oldest lighthouse station in Norway, first lit in 1655.
It has gone through several changes since it was built: In 1822, it was refitted with a coal lamp, and in 1854 a new lamp was installed with the current lens. The current cast iron tower was set up in 1915 and fitted with the old Fresnel lens. In 1920 the lighthouse station got its first fogsignal, a sirene. The fogsignal and its machinery is placed in a building beside the tower.
During WW2 Lindesnes lightouse was taken over by the Germans. Being an important watchpoint the German built a little fortress with four guns and, after a while, a radarantenna. The traces from WW2 are visible as trenches, tunnels etc.
In the 1950s the lighthousestation was electrified and the fogsignal was changed into a powerful Diaphone. The fogsignal was closed as a navigational aid in 1988 but it is still operational and being used at special occasions.
Lindesnes lighthouse is owned by the Norwegian Coastal Administration and still an active lighthouse.
