Noordwijk aan Zee lighthouse

The lighthouse on the photo, located along the Wilhelmina Boulevard in Noordwijk aan Zee, was built in 1921. The first mention of a lighthouse on this spot dates from 1444, and in that time the light was lit only when fishermen were active at sea. The current tower has 6 floors and a staircase with 108 steps. Visitors are not allowed inside.

Zooming in we saw a very pretty weather vane!

  2. Die ziet er echt mooi uit. Jammer dat er steeds minder gebouwen zijn waaraan je de functie meteen af kan lezen. Toch een beetje architectuur verarming vind ik.

  6. This is one of the tallest lighthouses I've seen Marleen, it's a beauty..I can see why it's closed to the public, bit risky!
