With a height of 64,8 meters, this lighthouse, built in the second half of the 19th century, was an admirable masterpiece of architecture at that time and still is the tallest lighthouse along the Polish coastline and one of the tallest worldwide. This lighthouse acts as a radio beacon, emitting the call signal „SW“ in morse code. The lighthouse was originally built using yellow facing bricks and had an octagonal layout. Those facing bricks, however, proved unable to withstand extremely harsh weather conditions. It was therefore decided to replace them completely – after several trials, yellow and red clinker was used. Some of the cornice elements were carried out in square granit blocks. At the same time, the layout was changed from octagonal to round. After its renovation in 1999 – 2000, the lighthouse was made accessible to visitors.
