event, Netherlands, tip, tourism

Now it is officially confirmed: the Dutch mudflat is the »most beautiful natural area of the Netherlands«.

In a nationwide vote, the Dutch part of the mudflat made the race in front of the National Park De Hoge Veluwe near Arnhem and the Dutch South Holland National Park Hollandse Duinen.

Among the 13 nominated natural areas were the National Park Oosterschelde in Zeeland, the Frisian freshwater wetlands Weerribben-Wieden and the Caribbean volcanic island Saba.

With this award, the Dutch “Wattenmeer” (aka mudflat) – from the mainland coast to the five islands – is now at the top of the list of natural areas of the world class. The area covers a total of 40 percent of the surface of the Netherlands. More than six million birds overwinter or breed annually.
