Watt is going on?
Be enchanted by the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea, that not only shows off as a national park but also as World Heritage and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Experience first-hand the contrast between high and low tide, endless sky and wide sea, little people and much nature. Twice a day the tidal falls dry at low tide and submerged at high tide again. This gives this district an incredibly rich flora and fauna with animal and plant species found nowhere else in the world. Enjoy two double on the islands of Fohr and Amrun, visit the Halligen, Island Pellworm and the peninsula Nordstrand. Even the culinary region has much to offer: homemade cake with hot Pharisees, 'Deichkäse', 'Salzwiesenlamm', extra fresh crab, golden sand clods and freshly filled fish rolls, which are actually much more than just a minor detail.
