The light house is cute and open Monday to Saturday from 11 to 5 pm for 2 Euros. I would not drive to Urk to see it but when you are where it is nice to go inside.

The Lighthouse in Urk is a lovely old lighthouse similar to the old ones at home. It has a lovely position.

Urk is a lovely small town with lots of history and the lighthouse is definitely a highlight. The lighthouse is also a perfect logo for Urk.

Great Views; particularly of the wind turbines which pump the sea water away from the land. Yes, a gem.

This lighthouse is relatively small and not that well kept up. It is now operated by a government office (Rijkswaterstaat).

This is a must-have place to visit whenever you are in Amsterdam or the Netherlands. It's a bit of drive from Amsterdam, but it's well worth it, especially the view.

Can't miss this as a part of the tour through the old 'isle' Urk! You clearly can see over the IJsselmeer and even see other city's across the lake.

Nice views upstairs and interredting enough for a ten minute visit. Worthwhile but don't get too excited. Good as part of a tour of Urk
