The Winter 2013/14

The Winter has already arrived to The Wadden Sea and The Wadden Sea Centre has closed the doors to the exhibition after a long and exciting 2013 season.

We are opening again February 15. 2012 at 10 o'clock.

Eventhough, the exhibition is closed for the public during the winter there will still be a lot of activities at the Wadden Sea Centre.

The Oyster season is already in full swing. We had some fantastic tours this autumn with perfect weather. We hope that the rest of the oyster season will continue in this way. 

The nature interpreters are to be contactet on daily basis at the Wadden Sea Centre. So, it is still possible to book a guided tour in the winter landscape of The Wadden Sea.





Harbour seal are increasing in numbers.

A report from the trilateral working group CWSS (Common Wadden Sea Secretariat) has documented an increase in the populations size of harbour seals in the entire Wadden Sea.
