National Park and World Heritage Site
on the North Sea coast

The world’s largest contiguous tidal flat area is ecologically unique and offers diverse habitats for numerous animal and plant species. As an important resting and feeding place for millions of migratory birds, the Wadden Sea contributes to the preservation of biodiversity.

The Wadden Sea Protection Station has been working to preserve the unique nature of our coastline for over 60 years. With around 100 volunteers in almost 20 stations every year, environmental monitoring and hazard identification in the Wadden Sea are among its central tasks. This has also contributed to the fact that this region is now protected as a national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Great family-run hotel. Nice staff. Recommended for people looking for peace and relaxation. The restaurant is also excellent. A weekend feels like a week's vacation. Have been there six times now and the next vacation is planned.

Very nice staff, the service was very good. The food was plentiful and delicious. I opted for asparagus and didn't regret it. The restaurant has a quiet, romantic location and is hard to find without a satnav. The owners are very dog-friendly and the area is perfect for a long dog walk. We felt very comfortable there.

I call it great luck to have enjoyed my wonderful vacation in North Friesland in this hotel, which I can highly recommend. The hotel room was impeccable considering the three-star category, the staff were very friendly and, above all, the food in the associated restaurant "Deichgraf" was excellent. I am really very satisfied, grateful and would recommend the hotel to anyone in a heartbeat. It turned my already wonderful trip into a perfect experience.
