  • Hiking route 1903607

Your walk will start with a cup of coffee at Chef's! Food & Drinks , the restaurant of Apollo Hotel IJmuiden Seaport Beach. Then you walk to the Lage lighthouse of IJmuiden, one of the two round, reddish-brown, cast iron towers that guard the mouth of the IJgeul. This lighthouse is so small because three floors were removed from it in 1909. These have been moved to Vlieland to form an independent lighthouse. The landscape at the North Sea Canal is very different from that in the dunes. Who knows what kind of large ships you will see up close! Stop by the water to reflect on all the hard work that went into the construction of the canal: an entire dune area was excavated by hand. You walk back along the Kennemermeer.
