16. The Wad­den Sea – a UN­ESCO World Nat­ur­al Her­it­age Site

There’s no better place to experience the primal force of the tides and the untamed beauty of nature. The Wadden Sea is Germany’s most important natural environment, and as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site it’s on a par with the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Grand Canyon in the US.
