Wadden Region
The entire Wadden Sea, from Den Helder to Esbjerg, has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It ranks among the world’s most important wetlands and has unique natural values. The area is also of major importance in terms of flood risk management. The outer deltas, the Wadden islands, the flats and the salt marshes together protect the northern coast of the Netherlands.
