 Lindesnes lighthouse

Under is an underwater restaurant in Lindesnes. Its restaurant floor is found 5.5 meter under sea level. The eating floor is on 495 square meters, making it the biggest underwater restaurant in the world, with a capacity of 40 people. It is the only underwater restaurant in Europe, and the third worldwide. The building itself is an architectural gem. It is reminiscent of a rock formation that is rising out of the sea; almost like a kind of art installation.

The award-winning architect firm, Snøhetta, has designed the spectacular building.

Half-sunken into the sea, the building´s 34-meter long monolithic form breaks the surface of the water to rest directly on the seabed five meters below. The structure is designed to fully integrate into its marine environment over time, as the roughness of the concrete shell will function as an artificial reef, welcoming limpets and kelp to inhabit it. With the thick concrete walls lying against the craggy shoreline, the structure is built to withstand pressure and shock from the rugged sea conditions. Like a sunken periscope, the restaurant´s massive window offers a view of the seabed as it changes throughout the seasons and varying weather conditions.
