Sun, clouds and lots of sky blue - anyone who travels through the northern part of Lower Saxony including the region Ostfriesland (East Frisia) and the North Sea coast is on familiar terms with nature.

Whichever part of the North Sea coast in Lower Saxony or the seven East Frisian islands you visit, you will be surveying an area that holds a natural beauty, unique in the world: the Wadden Sea. Around 500 kilometres long, this area extends from Denmark, along the North Sea coast of Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony, into the Netherlands. The wetland area comprises approximately 13,000 square kilometres and is regarded as one of the last, largely untouched landscapes in Europe. The Wadden Sea features over 10,000 different plant and animal species.  

People with disabilities find a broad range of services and options: On many of the islands and coastal towns on Lower Saxony’s North Sea coast, you can hire mud mobiles and mud wheelchairs that allow you to discover the huge Wadden Sea on a tour, or simply relax on the beach and enjoy the sunshine and the refreshing breeze. A mud mobile is also ideal for little ones on a trip onto the mud flats for all the family.
