Wadden Sea

The Wadden Sea is the largest tidal flats system in the world, where natural processes proceed largely undisturbed. It extends along the coasts of Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands.

For its globally unique geological and ecological values the Wadden Sea is listed by UNESCO as World Heritage. Nowhere else in the world is there such a dynamic landscape with a multitude of habitats, shaped by wind and tides. Global biodiversity is reliant on the Wadden Sea. It has a high biological diversity and is an important area for both breeding and migrating birds. Wadden Sea is an important habitat for both harbor and grey seals. This makes it among the most human-altered habitats on the planet. One of the most famous recreation for visitors is mudflat hiking, walking on the sandy flats at low tide.

During your visit to this part of Germany explore this largest tidal region in the world.
