Teaching in the Wadden Sea

THE WADDEN SEA CENTRE offers several opportunities for an educational visit with focus on the nature and culture of Wadden Sea National Park. An example is our tour to a bank for the Pacific Oyster 3 km out in the Wadden Sea, where the focus point is an understanding of the significance of an invasive species in an ecosystem. Another possibility is experiencing one of the largest predators in Denmark - the harbor seal, and learn about the management of this furry fish-eater.

All our teachers are educated biologists with a thorough knowledge of the Wadden Sea. The possibilites for a teaching session is plenty, and we will happily tailor one just for your wishes!

Inspiration from our lessons can be found in here. You are welcome to call a nature guide and have them plan a programme suitable to your area of interest.

Project or internship?

If you are a student of biology or turism it is possible to use THE WADDEN SEA CENTRE for a projekt assignment. 

It is also possible to be an intern here, fx. as a guide. Call or write us if this have interest.


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.
