Wadden Sea World Heritage site
The Wadden Sea stretches across an area of 500 kilometres along the coasts of the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. Since 2009, this fantastic nature reserve has been added to the list of UNESCO world heritage sites and has thus received an internationally protected status and this guarantees the preservation of this unique area.
In addition to the common seals, this part of nature is also home to a wide range of birds such as ducks, terns, gulls, waders and spoonbills. These species find food when they migrate and spend the winter or nest on the Wadden Sea. Various species of fish such as the herring, sole and plaice spawn here prior to returning to the North Sea. In short, a breeding site for many natural species.
At walking distance from the Baayvillas, you can take a ferry to the Dutch Wadden Island called 'Schiermonnikoog'. Take your bicycles along on the boat, the island is car-free!
