Destination Germany 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall: The Wadden Sea.
A lot has happened in Schleswig-Holstein since the fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago. The Wadden Sea mudflats have become a UNESCO World Heritage site, for example, which has given nature conservation in Germany a massive boost. @sommertageblog made their way to Schleswig-Holstein to explore the plants and animals that live in and around the Wadden Sea.
SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN WADDEN SEA NATIONAL PARK.
When the tide is out, you can walk far out to sea on the coastal mudflats. And the best thing is that you can jump around in the mud and bury your feet in the cool silt. ;) You might even find the odd treasure.
SEAL SPOTTING IN BÜSUM.
The Wadden Sea is a protected habitat for the many plant and animal species that thrive here. Like these seals that have made themselves at home on the sandbank just outside Büsum. You can take a boat trip from Büsum to watch the seals in their natural surroundings. But be careful! Make sure you keep your distance from these shy animals so that you don’t disturb them.
Situated by the North Sea, St Peter-Ording is a great base for seeing the local sights. The wooden buildings on the beach make for a great photo opportunity, as @sommertageblog shows here. Thanks to their stilts, the buildings have become a famous landmark of this coastal town.
A visit to Westerheversand Lighthouse is well worth the trip. An easy bike ride will take you there from St Peter-Ording. As the land is very flat in northern Germany, the best way to get around the North Sea coast is by bike. That’s what @sommertageblog did – and obviously had a lot of fun along the way! ;)
