Wadden Sea National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
On June 26, 2009, UNESCO declared the German-Dutch Wadden Sea a World Heritage Site. This gives the mudflats in front of Cuxhaven the same status as the Galapagos Islands, the Serengeti, the Grand Canyon or the Great Barrier Reef.
The tide changes every 6 hours, changing the landscape permanently. You can experience this natural spectacle at any time of the year. Thanks to the changing water levels, you can hike far into the mudflats and from the mainland to Halligen and islands.
With experienced mudflat guides you can familiarize yourself with the mudflats and their nature. Well-informed mudflat hikers can also experience this landscape on their own (note the danger). You can experience nature in all its glory on guided mudflat hikes. Another possibility are the horse-drawn carriages to the island of Neuwerk.
