Lighthouse Eierland TexelLighthouse Eierland Texel

The bold red lighthouse on the northern tip of the island is for many people the symbol of Texel. The lighthouse is almost year-round daily open to visitors.

Magnificent views
After taking the staircase of 153 steps a magnificent view awaits you ; over the North Sea, Wadden Sea and the nearby island of Vlieland.

Turbulent history
In 1864 Texel got a lighthouse, after years of campaigning conducted by the Texel solicitor Kikkert. Before the establishment of the lighthouse every year many ships perished, because the surrounding waters were so dangerous for shipping.
