When Is the Best Time 

Every Friday in July and August you can climb up the stairs between 7-9 p.m. You get the tickets at the boathouse Boulevard Zuid 5. I like it most with dunes infront, so late afternoon until evening is the best light for this picturesque Lighthouse.

Netherlands, Egmond an Zee
Review and Tips 

The lighthouse was built 1833 and is 28 m high. It is an Dutch memorial to Jan van Speijk; a Dutch naval lieutenant who became a hero for his opposition to the Belgian Revolution. In 1831 he blow up his gunboat including the crew and himself to avoid being arrested by the Belgians.
