The lighthouse of Texel 

At the most northern tip of Texel

Clasped between the North Sea and the Wadden Sea you will find the lighthouse on the most northern tip of Texel, the symbol of Texel. The lighthouse was built in 1864 and still does its work every night!

The view

You climb the six floors of the tower via a spiral staircase with 118 steps. But with 47 metres above sea level, you will be rewarded with the most beautiful view of the entire island! The Texel lighthouse is the only lighthouse in the Netherlands where you have a view of the sea on three sides. In clear weather you can even see Vlieland, Wieringen and Den Helder.

Under fire of the war

The lighthouse was under heavy fire in 1945. The blasted tower remained but a new tower wall was built around the lighthouse. You can still see the bullet holes by walking between the walls.
