The Brandaris Terschelling is a national treasure. The Brandaris, a lighthouse on the island of Terschelling, off the north coast of Holland, is the oldest in the Netherlands and is 420 years old. Holland’s PostNL had a special reason to issue a stamp recently featuring this iconic tower, as last month the lighthouse was reopened, after a five-month period of renovation. This was necessary in order to optimise guidance for shipping on the Wadden Sea.
