Additional information:

The town has a light on the western pier head at least since 1850. First it was a wooden quadruped with a light at approximately 5 m, later a slim skeleton mast with the light at about 14 m.  From the end of the 1980s both pier heads are outfitted with red and green lights. The environment has been changed dramatically since then. The western pier head has been moved considerably around the year 2000 in order to double the fairway of the harbour entrance. Apart from that, todays modern the lights are roughly on the same location.    

The fishing fleet of Huizen can be recognized by HZ as vessel registration.
