There seems to be some debate about the exact name for this light.  The Lighthouse Directory gives the name (as shown above) as Langeliniekaij Fyr, but I have seen it referred to elsewhere as Kalkbrænderihavn Østmole.  Either way, it is a very attractive small lighthouse.  It appears that it is now inactive although, from the evidence visible in the photo above, there still appears to be a "lightbulb" in there.  The light is surrounded by bench seats and is clearly a popular viewpoint for people waving off their friends on departing cruise ships.

The photo below gives a wider, landscape view of the light.

To give a better sense of scale, the photograph below shows the light with the DFDS ferry Crown of Scandinavia sailing for Oslo in the background.
