The Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park on the North Sea coast in Lower Saxony covers the mudflat area between the Ems and Elbe Rivers, including the offshore East Frisian islands.

At the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park, visitors can experience natural spectacles and incredible landscapes, such as the region's distinctive salt marshes, the steep sandy dunes near Dangast and the "floating bog" near Sehestedt, which is the only remaining outer dyke bog in Germany. The area is home to fascinating sea birds, such as shelducks, and seals. Staff at the Norddeich seal centre take care of little seal pups that have been orphaned. Museums and monuments pay testament to the region's history and culture, including the Wilhelmshaven Wadden Sea Information Centre and the old lighthouse on the island of Wangerooge.
