Notes:This lighthouse is also the town gate. The building dates back to the late 14th century, and it became a gate in 1592. The light is believed to have been discontinued sometime in the late 1950s, when the land reclamation program was started in the area of the Zuiderzee that became the southeastern Flevoland polder.
