Netherlands Scheveningen Lighthouse
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
In earlier times a simple fire on the beach safely guided fishermen back to the coastline. Around 1805 the open fire was replaced by a stone building topped by a lookout post and a brazier. This container for fire then developed into the lighthouse we know today. The current lighthouse in Scheveningen was designed by Quirinus Harder in 1875, who also designed the lighthouses in Texel, Vlieland and Den Helder. Now 432 cast iron plates and 4,600 bolts hold the colossal tower together. The Scheveningen lighthouse has the status of a national monument. If you would like to visit the lighthouse, this can be arranged at Muzee Scheveningen
