Vores fælles Verdensarv

There is a place where
heaven and earth share the same stage

a place like no other on Earth

a place where ebb and flow, sea and wind shape the coastline in front of your eyes

with islands, tidal flats, salt marshes and dunes

a habitat for thousands of species of plants and animals

a roosting and feeding sanctuary for 12 million migratory birds

jointly protected as national parks and nature reserves

extending 500 km along the Danish, German and Dutch North Sea Coast

the largest tidal flat system in the world where natural processes proceed undisturbed
