Seals looking right at you from their sandbar, birds foraging for a meal after a long journey and the constant changing of the landscape as a result of the tides; the Wadden Sea area is a silent wilderness where you can go for a cruise, cross the mudflats or hike. In addition, there are wonderful options for food and drink refreshments.

UNESCO World Heritage the Wadden Sea


The Waddenzee is the only 'wilderness' in the Netherlands. Vulnerable to the workings of the restless tides, the area is always on the move; where the water blends with land has become an exceptional transit zone. Seals recline on the dry sandbanks and the birds, after a hard day's flight, enjoy the extensive menu served up on a plate before them.
