“In February 1998, I extinguished the light. The lighthouse lost its function after 75 years because of changes to the channels and alterations to the harbour entrance. But there has been a light shining at this spot for much longer. From the middle of the 18th century, fires crackled, acetylene gas lights hissed and the lighthouse light system, now at the bottom of the stairwell, twinkled because the many lighthouses Harlingen had were always rebuilt on the same spot. For centuries, sailors’ eyes were fixed on this spot. Now the roles have been wonderfully reversed: the beacon has become a lookout point.”

Piet Beuker, Harlingen Lighthouse Keeper from 1970-1998
