Visit the lighthouse
You can park your car or bike at the car park near the lighthouse, and with such a large, red beacon nearby, you can easily find them again later on. 😉
There are great views of the lighthouse from the car park so be sure to take some photos. The lighthouse is probably the most photographed building on Texel. We highly recommend climbing to the top of the lighthouse, but be sure to check its opening hours first. You can climb up the steps dating back to 1864, following in the footsteps of many people who climbed the lighthouse under different circumstances.
Once you reach the top, at a height of 47 metres, you are rewarded with a spectacular view. Please take your time to truly take it all in.
Tip: If you climb the lighthouse at dusk on a clear winter day, you will also see the other lighthouses in the area.
