This Dutch lighthouse was erected near Breskens at the Nieuwe Sluis (New Sluice), and its lamp was first lit on 19 January 1868.

The lighthouse was opened to the public in July 2015, so if you're able to make the trip, you can explore the lighthouse over weekends (Fridays to Sundays) from April to October.
