Denmark

The Danish Wadden Sea is the most northern part of the World Heritage. The Danish Wadden Sea has many particularities, making this region a true treasure chest of natural highlights, all waiting to be discovered.

 

National Park Vadehavet
The National Park Vadehavet / Wadden Sea is the largest Danish national park. It stretches from the Danish-German border to Blåvandshuk and covers an area of 1,459 km2, of which about 300 km2 is on the landside. In the National park shallow waters, tidal flats, sand dunes, barrier islands, tidal channels, dunes, marshes and salt marshes can be found. It extends over four municipalities: Barrels, Esbjerg, Fanø and Varde.

Skallingen Peninsular, Varde Å and Ho Bay
The Skallingen Peninsula is a particularly dynamic area. Experience this untouched landscape which generates an immediate feeling of humility towards the power of nature. Or visit Ho Bugt (Ho Bay) its neighbor to the east with its large variety of natural habitats: soft and hard tidal flats, high sand banks with the little islands of Langli “on top”, and watered by tidal channels. Here you find Varde A, the only river that has a direct outflow to the Wadden Sea – without a dyke or sluice.

Islands: Rømø, Mandø and Fanø
The Wadden Sea islands Rømø, Mandø and Fanø lie along the coast like pearls on a string and they offer unique experiences. The sea, the dunes, the woods the heaths and the fauna all speak their own language and they appeal to both children and adults to use it.

 

Rømø
Rømø emerged from the sea and is part of the chain of islands that shield and separate the Wadden sea from the the Noth Sea. The landscape is predominant made up of sand. It boasts no less than five dune ridges, testifying to the island constantly growing to the west. Furthest to the west, an almost unreal beach plain unfolds – it is the largest in Denmark and the trademark of Rømø.

Man
Mandø is the only Danish Wadden island to which you can drive, bike or hike but it is not possible to sail there. The Ebbevjen causeway on the seabed or the Läningsvejen on a low dam brings you to the islands. A day trip to this untouched, desert-like landscape among seals and seabirds forms a stark contrast to the marshes and tidal flats, and will complete your exepreience of the Wadden World Hertiage experience.

Fanø

The crossing from Esbjerg to Fanø only takes 10 minutes, but it feels like travelling between two different eras. Experience a landscape mosaic in “widescreen”: multicolored dunes, vast sand banks, wide marshes and both saltwater and freshwater meadows.

Tonder Marsh & Hoyer
A green marsh grazed landscape, cut through by water-filled canals and ditches, freshwater lakes an a saltwater lake. A framed landscape, almost floating on water and stage for a fascinating ballet at sunset of more than one million starlings: “Black Sun” is quite amazing experience and a “must see”.
