Niechorze Lighthouse - a lighthouse in Niechorze, on the Polish coast of the Baltic Sea, by a steep cliff. The lighthouse is located in Niechorze, West Pomeranian Voivodeship; in Poland.
The lighthouse is located in between the Kikut Lighthouse, and the Kołobrzeg Lighthouse .
The lighthouse in Niechorze is located at the edge of a steep cliff, with a height of 20 metres. The lighthouse's base is a 13 metre high square-shaped building, on both sides of the tower. The light glare from the lighthouse can be seen 36 km away due to the 1000w light bulb which is enhanced by 20 prismal crystals. The lighthouse in Niechorze was commissioned by the German Ministry of Shipping in 1863 and started operating on December 1, 1866. Although the lighthouse did not suffer any war damage in World War II, after the liberation of Poland - 8 mines left by the Germans were discovered, and safely removed without detonation. After the end of the Second World War there was a considerable delay re-starting the lighthouse, it was not until December 18, 1948 when the lighthouse was finally operational - this was due to the erosion of the cliff which the lighthouse was located close to; the authorities secured the cliff by putting large boulders and rock armour (500 metres of heavy concrete) to secure the cliff and provide a stable ground for the lighthouse. Currently the lighthouse is open to tourists, with a viewpoint - nearby the lighthouse there is a miniature park of all Polish lighthouses, a popular attraction for families and enthusiasts.

  • Nice view. Tower not too tall. Just around 200 stairs. Easy to climb even with a kid on your hands. It’s sort of crowded and you should expect to stay in a line for a while. Only public parking paid.....  more »
  • Great view not expensive around 10 zl for adult (£2) quite to climb up but the view for city of Niechorze and the see side priceless. Very windy up there
  • The lighthouse provides remarkable view not only to Baltc sea but also to the lake on the other side. Mind the 199 steps 😉
