Marken's Lighthouse - Netherlands

During my trip to the Netherlands, I've also been to Marken, a village with a population of 1,810 in the municipality of Waterland in the province of North Holland. Unfortunately I didn't get to see the lighthouse as I didn't spend much time there.

The Marken Lighthouse can be found on the IJsselmeer, rising from the easternmost point of the Dutch peninsula of Marken. There had been a lighthouse on this location since the early 1700s but the current structure was built by J. Valk in 1839.

This monumental lighthouse consists of a 54-ft. (16m) tower attached to two pyramidal-roofed houses. The lighthouse is now a private residence. - in:
