Orehoved Lighthouse is a lighthouse in Orehoved on the north coast of Falster, Denmark. It was built in 1895 on the northwest corner of the quay, replacing an earlier light which had simply been placed on a mast at the end of the railway pier. A blue gas burner was installed in 1912. In 1933, a third storey was added to the tower, bringing it up to a height of 11 metres (36 ft).[2][3]
