The Wadden Sea area
The Wadden Sea area is not just the most beautiful, but also the biggest nature reserve in the Netherlands and features an unrivalled wilderness: the Wadden Sea. The Wadden Sea is already a world-class nature reserve, as UNESCO made it a World Natural Heritage site in 2009. Under the influence of the changing tides, the nature and landscape change continually. The special animals and plants there are strong and vulnerable at the same time, because of the conditions inherent to the Wadden Sea area. Six million birds a year stop off on the mudflats during their annual migration.
