LJmuiden Lage Lighthouse, North Sea Port, The Netherlands

Scroll down to content

On our cruise to Iceland, I wanted to find as many lighthouses that I could, for my ‘Lighthouse Category’ at the end of the North Sea Canal, I photographed six.  I like to post each lighthouse separately, so to start with, the above lighthouse is (range front) I think we would call it the low light.  The lighthouse was built in 1870 with the high light tower and designed by Quirinius Harder and they were erected to guide ships into the harbor of IJmuiden, the North Sea port on the west side of Amsterdam.  In 1909 the tower was reconfigured, the upper portion was removed and relocated to Vlieland, in addition, the daymark was changed from black and white to red and white.  Adjacent to the lighthouse is a 3-story building housing the harbor control center and a restaurant.
