Beyond the uninhabited Wadden Island Rottumeroog, on the border between the Netherlands and Germany, lies the 460 km² Ems-Dollard estuary. The Dollard is actually a large embayment where the rivers Ems and Westerwoldse Aa flow into the Wadden Sea. It's these rivers which make the Dollard so unique.
