Wadden Sea

The Wadden Sea is a marine zone lying between northwestern continental Europe and the Frisian Islands. Parts of it lie in Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark.

The Wadden Sea is a shallow zone containing tidal flats and wetlands. Because of its unparalleled scale and biological diversity, it has been included in UNESCO's World Heritage List. It has a total area of some 10,000 square kilometers. In German, the area is known as the "Wattenmeer." This is an automatic compilation of DW content on the Wadden Sea.
