The Wadden Sea - a UNESCO Site

Visit the National Park of The Wadden Sea, the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world.

It is a large, temperate, relatively flat coastal wetland environment, formed by the intricate interactions between physical and biological factors that have given rise to a multitude of transitional habitats with tidal channels, sandy shoals, sea-grass meadows, mussel beds, sandbars, mudflats, salt marshes, estuaries, beaches and dunes.

The area is home to numerous plant and animal species, including marine mammals such as the harbour seal, grey seal and harbour porpoise.

Wadden Sea is one of the last remaining large-scale, intertidal ecosystems where natural processes continue to function largely undisturbed. When visiting the Wadden Sea area be aware of the tides as different tours length depends on the tides and have a duration from 4-5 hours)(not depending on tides) or 6-7 hours (depending on tides).
