Lighthouses and lighthouse stations have been popular places to visit for many years. Lighthouse stations are often situated in beautiful natural areas, and actually going inside the lighthouse itself guarantees breathtaking views over the sea and archipelago.

Every summer, more than 50,000 people on holiday visit one of the Swedish Maritime Administration's lighthouses that are open to the public. That is about the same number of people as the population of a medium-sized Swedish town. Långe Jan, the lighthouse at the south cape of Öland, if the most popular and is visited each year by 20 – 35,000 people.

Örskär, Gotska Sandön, Hoburg, the north cape of Öland (Långe Erik), the south cape of Öland (Långe Jan), Kullen, Vinga, Sandhammaren and Hållö are all Swedish Maritime Administration lighthouses that are open to the public. The Swedish Maritime Administration is not responsible for tours of these lighthouses. Lighthouse societies, associations and organisations are all given right to access these lighthouses by agreement.
