Lighthouse 'Bornrif' Ameland

Lighthouse 'Bornrif'

An impressive appearance on the island is the lighthouse, built in 1880 of cast iron and 55 metres high. Since 2005, the lighthouse isn't used by the coast guard and isn't manned anymore. (there are camera's now to keep an eye on the shore).

The characteristic bundles of light still shine over the island and the lighthouse is now open for public. On different floors the visitor can find fascinating exhibitions and former lighthouse keepers digitally tell their stories.

Who takes up the challenge and climbs the 236 stairs of the lighthouse, awaits a stunning and unique view upstairs.
