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.

The Afsluitdijk is a major landmark (or a watermark, if you will) in the Netherlands. The dike was completed in 1933 and leads you in 32 km from Den Oever in North Holland to the province Friesland.
It is a fundamental part of the larger Zuiderzee Works, damming off the Zuiderzee, a salt water inlet of the North Sea and turning it into a fresh water lake (the IJsselmeer).
