Located in an intertidal zone in the southeastern reaches of the North Sea, the tidal mudflats near Cuxhaven near the mouth of the Elbe river are a part of an extensive Wadden Sea nature-reserve and -park. It is the world’s largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mudflats, stretching across 3 nations including Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands. The Wadden Sea park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009.
In 2017 findet der deutsche UNESCO-Welterbetag am 4. Juni statt.
