lighthouse Schiermonnikoog

Red lighthouse Schiermonnikoog in April 2005, also called "Noordertoren" or "Buitentoren". To give the island an unique identification, two identical lighthouses were built in 1853. On both towers a fixed light burnt. In 1911 the red lighthouse got a new optic, a rotating one, and the white lighthouse, standing deeper in the island, was closed. The twelve windows of the observing room below the gallery were inserted in 1951.
