Bornrif is the unofficial name of the lighthouse at Hollum in Ameland. The lighthouse was built in 1880, commissioned by King William III. After World War II there was a new, less bright, light on the tower. This tower then got the nickname: twilight lamp. In 1952, a new stronger light was placed, this light is 4,400,000 candlepower.
