Den Helder is a municipality and a city in the province of North Holland. It is home to the country`s main naval base. From here the Royal TESO ferryboat service operates the transportation link between Den Helder and the nearby Dutch Wadden island of Texel to the north. Huisduinen was the original older part of the city, whereas Helder itself was a nearby smaller hamlet. When a harbour was built near Helder the village began to grow and later became the seat of governance instead of Huisduinen. Due to its strategic location at the tip of the North Holland peninsula, multiple fortifications were built in the area, such as Fort Kijkduin. During the Dutch Golden Age, ships would be assembled near Den Helder and sail the world`s oceans from there. In 1795, the French captured 14 Dutch ships and 850 guns in the town`s deep-frozen harbour. In 1799 the city was the target of the Anglo-Russian invasion of Holland. During the 1820s, the North Holland Canal was dug from Amsterdam to Den Helder. The lighthouse Lange Jaap was built in 1877 and is the tallest cast-iron lighthouse in Europe, at 63.45 meters. In the Second World War most of the city was evacuated. We visited Den Helder and Fort Kijkduin on our way to and from Texel in the summer of 2019.
