The Blåvandshuk lighthouse stands 18 metres above sea level at Horns Bjerge, Denmark’s westernmost point, position 55 33.51’ N/08 05.07’ E. The lighthouse is now fully automatic, but it functions as it has done throughout all these years. The master’s house is now home to an exhibition on the Horns Reef offshore wind farm, one of the world’s biggest, and it is also home to the Blåvandshuk lighthouse tourist information centre.
Welcome to a world of guns and tanks. The exhibition features the development of weaponry from the oldest cannon found in Denmark and the ‘beautiful’ bronze cannons of Denmark’s absolute monarchy to the cannons used in the Battle of Dybbøl in 1864. You can see one of the Sherman tanks that arrived in Denmark after World War II, the Centurion tank of the Cold War and the Leopard tank used in the so-called ‘Operation Bøllebank’ in Bosnia in 1994. The vehicles have been maintained and are still fully operational. Every cannon, tank or truck in the hall has its own tale to tell – tales of technology, war and peace – and of the society of which we are all part.
