Exploring Sylt's Coastal Habitats

Wadden Sea Conservation Station - Hörnum

At the Wadden Sea Conservation Station there is an interesting world to be discovered and a lot to find out, for both young and old. Tideland hiding tours, lectures and guided tours are a great way to experience Sylt’s nature. You will be amazed at the station’s many aquariums, and kids can learn more about marine mammals, Sylt’s coastal and tideland conservation projects and the national park. The tidal workshop (Wattwerkstatt) is open every Friday from April through to October, from 3 to 6 pm.
