Welcome to Wadden Sea National Park

In the Wadden Sea National Park (in Danish, Nationalpark Vadehavet), the seabed meets the horizon twice daily, when low tide exposes tidal flats of sand and mud, and birds swoop to hoover up the buffet on offer (tasty morsels like worms, cockles, crabs, shrimp and snails). Annually, some 12 million feathered friends use this region as a feeding place, or to rest, on their migrations.

The history of humans in the region is also on show, with dikes and polders as evidence of the struggle to master the watery landscapes.
