That looks like it. Glad I could point you in the right direction.

Thanks for your suggestion! I think it is a Eryngium maritimum. Found on the Dutch wiki that it is quite common in some areas near the sea.

These plants are very cool. They seem to attract a lot of insects. I'm not sure of the species, but pretty sure it's Eryngium.
