Small but It's a Typical Lighthouse
Sep 2020
It is a small one but a classic type of Lighthouse and also it is in red and white. Next to the water, in front the lighthouse, there is a fog signal. Both of them are very important for helping the boats in the fog condition. It was not open, by the way

Cute little light house
Aug 2019
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.

Great position

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

Loved it
May 2019 • Couples
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

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

Quaint, but could not go in
May 2018 • Couples
On a sudden side trip, we went to Urk. It is like many of our old waterman based town. I love light houses and this one was quaint, class with what was probably a great view from above and a nice view from the base. I will return to this town and maybe next time I can go up.

Predominate viewpoint over Ijsselmeer.
Aug 2017 • Couples
We drove our rental car from Leeuwarden, having made stops at UNESCO Ir. D.F. Woudagemaal Pumping Station and UNESCO Schokland Polder.
After free parking near the port, we joined others walking the quiet narrow streets bordered with small homes on this past Sunday morning. The colorful lighthouse sits at the end on a high-point with a large anchor planted close by. We sat on one of the benches to contemplate the sea and the 3 long rows of new windmills. In that direction, was the Visser Monument with plaques of the lost.
Our only disappointment with this beautiful port was that no restaurants were open until 2PM today.

as lighthouses go, this is a relatively small one
Apr 2017 • Couples
This lighthouse is relatively small and not that well kept up. It is now operated by a government office (Rijkswaterstaat).

Lighthouse Urk!
Oct 2016 • Friends
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.

Great part of the tour!
Nov 2016 • Family
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.
