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.
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.
