The tower was originally built in 1470, as a brick tower of the Sint Willibrorduskerk. In 1817, a light with a red colored superstructure was placed by a design of J. Valk. In 1831, a fire destroyed the church, the tower alone remained intact. The tower consists of six floors and has a height of 53 meters. The lighthouse is located at the beginning of the main street called the Zuidstraat, and is unmanned and opened periodically to the public.
