Our Wadden Sea National Park oﬀers a special landscape consisting of diﬀerent habitats. Directly in front of the dike are thesalt marshes, which are ﬂooded up to 250 times a year. Plants and animals live here that have adapted to life with salt. Even we locals are drawn here again and again to enjoy the unique wide view. The oﬀshore Wadden Sea is a natural landscape that is unique in the world! Twice a day the tidal ﬂats are ﬂooded at high tide and dry out again at low tide. The inhabitants of the Wadden Sea are true survival artists, which you can get to know on a guided hike with the National Park mudflat guides.
A large expanse of water stretches seaward from the Greetsiel ﬁshing harbour, through whose navigation channel the ships reach the harbour. This area is under nature conservation. Here you can explore the birdlife from the dyke or from observation huts. When millions of migratory birds stop oﬀ in the Wadden Sea in the autum months to gorge themselves on food reserves and thousands of wild geese seek out the Ley Bay as their winter quarters, the Greetsiel National Park House is once again organising a varied programme on the subject of migratory birds as part of the „Zugvogeltage“ in the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park.
