It's the highest building of 3 main lighthouses on the island, though Kõpu lighthouse is located on a higher ground and beats Tahkuna of the total height above sea level. Loved the platform on top which you can see through :-)

I really enjoyed the architecture and the view. The rustic inside of the lighthouse and how it's built is quite an experience itself.

We visited Tahkuna tuletorn in early July. The scenery was beautiful and the lighthouse is definitely worth the visit. Admission to the lighthouse was 2 euros. The small yard cafe was nice and the waiter was friendly. Only minus was the untidy outdoor toilet.

A little off the beaten track but Hiiumaa is known for its lighthouses so you have to do them all. This one is really unusual: made of prefabricated cast iron panels. It was a couple of Euros to enter and this seemed a fair price...More
