Wilhelmshaven is located on the German North Sea coast and thus on an internationally renowned natural wonder - the Wadden Sea. The influence of the tides over thousands of years has created one of the most fertile ecosystems in the world on this huge area. It stretches over 450 km from the Netherlands via Germany to northern Denmark and extends up to 40 km out to sea from the mainland. This makes the Wadden Sea on the North Sea the largest of its kind in the world.
At low tide, the sandy areas seem to stretch out to the horizon and merge with it. The extremely fertile mudflats are a breeding ground for countless organisms, animals and plants and even attract birds to spend the winter. During your vacation in Wilhelmshaven, you have the opportunity to discover this unique ecosystem and learn all there is to know about it.
