Hollum Lighthouse in Ameland, the Netherlands

Postcard NL-2072836 arrived today with a view of the Hollum lighthouse, located at the westernmost part of the West Frisian Islands in Ameland, the Netherlands. The lighthouse, 59 m or 194 ft high, was built in the 1880s.

Next to the Ameland is the island of Terschelling where "Oerol", a Frisian summer festival, takes place every year in June. The festival lasts for 10 days and highlights live, public theater as well as music and the visual arts.
