lighthouse Westkapelle

Lighthouse Westkapelle (Hoge Licht) in June 2004. In the time around 1470 for the old village existed the danger to sink under dunes, thats why the village was transfered deeper into the mainland. The new built church served a long time as visual navigation mark and got a lantern in 1817.
