Tahkuna Lighthouse is situated on the north end of Hiiumaa. The construction of the cast iron lighthouse began in 1873. The lighthouse is assembled of cast iron parts of so-called Gordon system. System is based on prefabricated details, that are easy to transport. That's the reason why this high tower was rather easy to build. Interesting to know:• Czaric Russia bought the lighthouse from the world exhibition of Paris in 1871.• It's the highest lighthouse in Estonia - 42,7 m above the sea level.

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.

Beautiful place with his own history. Not only great views form lighthouse - many interesting sights are situated around the tower. There are a monument on the beach dedicated to the children who perished in the Estonia ferry disaster in 1994...

I'd hazard a guess the views from Kõpu lighthouse are better. But the ground area around this lighthouse is largely unspoilt and proves good access to the sea.... be warned much of the coast of Hiiumaa is either sharp pebbles/small rocky or reedbeds / marshes....More

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

Be prepared for many stairs. But the pain is worth it. Great view from the top is fantastic! There is also small souvenir shop and a toilet near. Ticket costs almost nothing!
