Netherlands, the Island Texel.
Eierland Lighthouse, near the village De Cocksdorp, is situated on the northernmost tip of the island. The lighthouse -designed by Quirinus Harder- was built on top of a 20-metre high sand dune and was lit on 1 November 1864. At that time, the distance from the lighthouse to the sea was 3 kilometres!
During the Georgian Uprising on Texel (april 1945) the lighthouse suffered heavy damage. It was repaired by constructing a new wall around it and a new upper-level construction. In this process the lighthouse lost two of its original nine storeys.
Eierland lighthouse is accessible for visitors up to the sixth floor.
