Wadden Sea World Heritage

The Wadden Sea has been included in the Unesco World Heritage List, which substantiates this area’s uniqueness


The dynamic Wadden Sea is a justified asset to the World Heritage List. The 400-kilometre long German-Dutch Wadden coast is so special that everyone really should explore it by walking the Wad, taking a boat trip or visiting one of the Frisian Islands.

The constant alternation of high and low tide shows how nature, plants and animals constantly adapt to the ever-changing circumstances at the Wadden area. The Wadden Sea has many faces and an exceptional variety in plants and animals. As many as ten to twelve million migratory birds visit the Wadden area annually. About 10,000 different plants and animals live on the land and in the water. Wadden Sea World Heritage: naturally!
