About the Wadden Sea National Park

The Wadden Sea National Park is one of the most valuable tidal areas in the World. To a large number of waterbird species, the Wadden Sea is both the most important roosting site and the most important wintering ground in Europe. Every year more than 10 million water birds pass through the Wadden Sea area during migration periods. Furthermore, a large population of the Common Seal is breeding in the Wadden Sea.

The entire Danish Wadden Sea has the status of a nature- and game reserve and is covered by some regulations for traffic, hunting and other activities.

Islands and tides

The Wadden Sea stretches some 500 km from Blåvandshuk in Denmark to Den Helder in The Netherlands and covers an area of 9.000 km2 marshes, tidal flats, deeps, sandflats, sandy beaches and dunes. A chain of more than 30 islands separates the Wadden Sea from the North Sea. Of these three are located in Denmark: Fanø, Mandø and Rømø.

The Wadden Sea area is affected by a tide, which mainly is caused by the gravitational forces of the Moon. These forces give the tide a regular interval of 6.25 hours between high and low tide, and normally the difference in water level is approximately 1.5 meters in Ho Bay.

In the rhythm between high and low tide

The rhythm of the tide between high and low water twice a day provides excellent conditions for the dynamic ecosystem of the Wadden Sea with its many microscopic plants and animals, which in turn make up the basic feeding for the seabed fauna of worms, mussels and crustaceans. In the Wadden Sea thousands of these animals can be found per square meter of tidal flat.

At low tide, when the mud- and sandflats are exposed, millions of migratory birds “fuel up” their energy reserves before their journeys between the breeding areas in Northern Scandinavia, Siberia and Greenland and their wintering grounds as far south as West and South Africa. The Common Seal also breeds in the Wadden Sea, and especially during breeding and moulting seasons they depend on being able to rest undisturbed on sand banks.

Facts about the Wadden Sea National Park:

  • Inaugurated on the 16th of October 2010

  • Total area: 145.900 ha (1.459 km2)

  • Area of land: 30.000 ha (300 km2)

  • Nature of international importance: Approx. 97 % is a part of the Natura 2000-network

  • Tide: Twice a day m3 of sea water is moved back and forth through the narrow deeps between the islands

  • Number of migratory waterbirds: 10-12 million every year

  • Number of roosting Starlings in the marshes: More than 1 million


Drive safely to Mandø

You can easily drive to Mandø in your own car, motorhome or caravan.

The roadway is 60 cm higher than the seabed - but always make sure that the current water level allows for driving in your own car, etc.!


At falling water levels, the table value is negative. This means that the table value must be added to the height of the road to calculate the road height above sea level!
For all negative table values at falling water levels, the lane road is passable for all traffic.

At rising water levels, the table value is positive. This means that the table value must be deducted from the height of the road to calculate the road height above sea level!
For all positive table values at rising water levels, the roadway will be safe for all traffic - but only up to +60 cm.
