The main tourist attraction of Lemvig is the Lighthouse at the western coast near Ferring - Bovbjerg Fyr. Built in 1877, it stands on the edge between Denmark and the ocean. The 93 steps of the tower lead to an open gallery, where you can enjoy a stunning view and every month different exhibitions take place here. Part of the Lighthouse is transformed into a cozy café.
