“Enjoy a good meal during summer at Amsterdam’s one and only lighthouse.”

Did you know Amsterdam had a lighthouse? Vuurtoreneiland is a small island in the IJmeer, Netherlands, just off the coast of Durgerdam. The island’s main function is as a base for the lighthouse; a military fort on the island was abandoned in the 1930s.

Note: The only time you can visit this island is during summer when there is an pop-up café and restaurant. Sometimes they have a winter restaurant too, just check their website for updates.
