Climate friendly travel
By train and without traffic jams comfortably to St. Peter-Ording.
If you haven't done a mudflat hike in your life yet, you can rejoice: This grandiose experience with bare feet in the South Wester is still ahead of you! This works best in the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea, the fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site
It is no coincidence that the successful German TV series "Against the Wind" was filmed in St. Peter Ording of all places. Because if there's one thing that one of Germany's most popular North Sea resorts has in abundance, it's the so-called "stiff breeze" that provides refreshment here all year round. However, that doesn't mean that true St. Peter Ording lovers will let it spoil their bathing pleasure on the beach: After all, anyone who gets involved in the "North Sea spa and sulfur bath" in the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park usually knows what to expect: Twelve kilometers of beach namely on a width of up to 2 kilometers - and rarely a sunburn! And anyone who makes it from the promenade to close to the water has already passed a fitness test.
Jaja, the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea: Rubber boots, stiff breezes and the rustic mudflats - these are roughly the things that come to mind when you hear the term Wadden Sea immediately come to mind. As a worthwhile nature excursion destination, the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea is one of the biggest attractions in the entire state. The Wadden Sea is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve anyway, but it is also an official bird sanctuary and flora-fauna habitat of the EU. And what does it actually include? Quite simply, the national park stretches from the German-Danish maritime border in the north to the mouth of the Elbe in the south. Another fact: With an area of over 4410 km², it is the largest national park between the North Cape and Sicily. Wow! If you want to experience the fascination of the Wadden Sea, it is best to take a short boat trip to the islands and Halligen in the Wadden Sea and visit one of the many seal banks: they are by far the most popular inhabitants of the Wadden Sea.
