Europe’s Highest Lighthouse Dedicated



Switzerland has dedicated a new lighthouse high in the Oberalp Pass, an amazing 2,046 metres (6,712 feet) above sea level. The lighthouse, a replica of the Hoek van Holland Lighthouse in the Netherlands (replica and original pictured) was built to help promote tourism to the area.
