The Wadden Sea
The tidal flats are the coastal areas of the North Sea that are influenced by tides twice a day. During the low tide, the water falls down so that you can go for mudflat walks, while during the high tide the Wadden Sea is under water. About 6 hours between the two tides.
The Wadden Sea in the North Sea covers a total area of 9,000 km² and was created around 7,500 years ago and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. For many bird and fish species, it offers a place to rest and search for food.
