Waddenzee - Cultural Heritage - Wadden Sea Landscape

Wadden Sea Landscape - young and unique. The wadden region is relatively young. It only formed during the post-glacial period, around 7000 years ago.

Although even now sandbanks and dunes are still forming and eroding in a rapid tempo. The dynamics of the area are unique. You still find landscapes in all phases of development. Even today with your own eyes, you can see and experience how landscapes were created in the glacial period.

Wadden Sea Diversity - natural forces and dynamics prevail
The Wadden Sea has its own exceptional manner of showing how nature, plants and animals continually adapt to the daily changeable circumstances on the flats. Where fresh river water mixes with salty seawater and processes such as tides, wind and deposition of sand and mud still occur, you find ingeniously adapted plants and animals. Thanks to its many faces, the Wadden Sea offers a tremendous variety of plants and animals a place to grow, live, breed, nurse, grow up, moult or rest.

Wadden Sea Wildlife - unique in its variety
The wealth of life in the Wadden Sea is phenomenal. Not only do you find lots of permanent residents, there are also lots of visitors. Every year, at least 10 to 12 million migrating birds make use of the wadden region. And did you know that here around 10,000 different plants and animals can be found living on land or in water? Such an enormous variety as found in the Wadden Sea exists nowhere else in the world!
