Between the islands of the North Sea coast and the continent is a unique amazing biotope – the wadden sea.
The tide rules:
At high tide the whole of the wadden land is under water. At low tide the sea recedes and releases the muddy and sandy soil.
As one of the largest coastal and tidal-dependent wetlands on the earth, the "Wattenmeer" was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO Commission in 2009.
Nature has created an incomparable plant and animal world:
• prunes, channels, salt meadows
• fish, shellfish, shrimp and prawns
• numerous, rare bird species food places and breeding grounds
• the wadden sea between the Dutch island of Texel and the northern tip of Sylt is unique worldwide
In a guided walk, you can learn a lot about rock worms, digging shells, crabs and the entire ecosystem.
