When the North Sea retreats at low tide, a mud desert full of life remains. Discover this interesting natural landscape with a panoramic view and learn more about the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site!
Every six hours, ebb and flow alternate on the Wadden Sea and change the landscape. At low tide, the water retreats so far that you can walk for hours on the seabed and find all kinds of inhabitants like the wadden worm in the sand. Along the coast, there are kilometers of beaches and dunes. By boat, you can go to the sandbanks,where seals rest, or to the many islands to be explored.
For all its biodiversity, the area in the south-eastern part of the North Sea, the Wadden Sea, was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2009.
