Oud-Kraggenburg is a former Island in the Zuiderzee (Southern Sea) on which a lighthouse was placed in 1848. The nearby village Kraggenburg has been named after this Island. In 1877 it has been renovated because of the salty influence of the sea. Nowaday's it still stands, but only in the fields of the surrounding farmlands of the province of Flevoland, the former Southern Sea. The Island is lying 4.5 meters above N.A.P. (Normaal Amsterdams Peil / Amsterdam Ordnance Datum), which means that it is 4.5m above average sea level. The lighthouse area is private property.
