Schools


Bring you class on a tour into The Wadden Sea National Park with one of the nature guides of THE WADDEN SEA CENTRE. The activities on the trip in the Wadden Sea is supported with a tour in our exhibition THE MIGRATORY BIRDS' WADDEN SEA. All of your selection of tours out in the National Park is adjusted to the "Fællesmål" (common goals) of the Danish schools. I may also call and have a talk with a nature guide, so we will make a tour adjusted to your specific wishes for learning.

If you are on a camp with tour school class you may find prizes for schools here and practical information about sleeping accommodations etc. in the area etc. may be found here

 

Prepare for your visit on www.mitvadehav.dk, where you may find small assignments and film giving a good introduction to the Wadden Sea. REMEMBER to bring: Wellington boots, warm water- and wind resistant clothes, a lunch together with something to drink. In the summer it is a good idea to bring sunscreen, a hat, extra socks and perhaps extra pants.

THE WADDEN SEA CENTRE has 4 all-terrain wheelchairs available for rent to student with handicaps.

The new WADDEN SEA CENTRE


With the unique nature of architect Dorte Mandrups building - where reeds are used on facade, roof and underlay, and lists of robinia-wood make the already existing building melt seamlessly together with the new building - the result is a structure, that almost seems to grow from the ground - gently and adapted to the flat marshland. 

The exhibition "THE MIGRATORY BIRDS' WADDEN SEA" is likewise adapted to the singular center. In cooperation with THE WADDEN SEA CENTRE, architect Johan Carlsson has with his thorough design created a poetic, aesthetic and modern exhibition, which with great perception shows the Wadden Sea and the migratory birds. Here are experiences which catches and involves the guests of the center - young as well as elderly - in the wondrous world of the Wadden Sea.
