The Hallig islands in the North German Wadden Sea

From the islands in the North German Wadden Sea you can reach the Hallig islands by boat. The Hallig islands are raised only a few meters above sea level, which is why they are flooded at heavy flood. The only protection for the residents are mounds of earth, which are called Warften.

The journey takes you to the Hallig islands Langeness and Hooge. A visit to Hooge is worth especially in spring. Then you can watch Brent geese, before they fly back to their Arctic home.

At the end of the journey you can join a walk across the mudflats between the Hallig islands Hooge and Norderoog. Norderoog is a breeding and resting place for many rare sea birds and may not be entered during the breeding season.

The videos shown are part of the Blu-ray North German Wadden Sea and the DVD North German Wadden Sea. Both are available exclusively at Travel Movies.
