Långe Erik (en:Tall Erik), "långe" meaning tall or the tall, is a Swedish lighthouse built in 1845 and located on a little island at the north cape of Öland, the second largest island in Sweden. The island is connected to Öland by a small bridge built in 1965.
The height of the lighthouse is 32 meters and it has a focal height of 31 meters. The range of the lighthouse is 13.8 nautical miles (26 km; 16 mi).
The older, larger lens is still installed, but no longer in use. The lens was used until the 1990s before an aerobeacon was installed on the lantern's balcony. The light is remote-controlled by the Swedish Maritime Administration.
The tower is open for climbing during the summer season for a small fee. #Fyr #Lighthouse #Långe_Jan #Sweden #Öland
