Marstein Lighthouse

Marstein Lighthouse is a lighthouse in the municipality of Austevoll, Norway which was built in 1887. The lighthouse was automated in 2002.

The French lens that was mounted in 1887 is still in use today, even though it has received visible marks from gunshots during World War II.

The Marstein lighthouse (height 38m over sea) stands at the entrance of the Korsfjord and therefore assists ships going to both Bergen and the Hardangerfjord.
