Boat Trip to Söderskär Lighthouse island, Helsinki

Boat Trip to Söderskär Lighthouse island, Helsinki

Söderskär Lighthouse   was built  during the Russian era in 1862 on the island of Mattlandet. Location was chosen because it was possible to sea from there far out on the open sea, even 15 miles away (appr. 27 kilometres). The hexagonal, sixstorey and 40m tall lighthouse tower was designed by Ernst Lohman and it represents the neogothic architectural style. To make sure the lighthouse would stand time, the lower part was built of stones and only the upper part of bricks. However, it was later found out that the tower needed to be stiffened.

New types of lens called Fresnel lens were used. The source of light was built out of  crystal prisms, which made the light  very visible. The light flashed every 90 seconds. The lighthouse crew consisted of four keepers, who had their families over there as well.  In 1957 the lighthouse was automated and converted for acetylene. It served until 1989.
