The Noorderpier from Harlingen runs from the new industrial port to the mouth of the harbor. The pier is accessible to cyclists and pedestrians. The islands of Vlieland and Terschelling are clearly visible on clear days from the pier.
Begroeing: At the head of the pier, an additional flood barrier of blocks has been built to regulate the flow along the harbor entrance. The bowl that was created as a result is one of the most beautiful beaches in Harlingen.
The Noorderpier not only protects the port of Harlingen against excessively high water, but also as sailing guidance to the new fishing port. The result is a winding “channel” where the larger ships only pass through with towing guidance. However, with the presence of a wadden club in the port city, a new port entrance will not be in place for the time being.
