About National Park Lauwersmeer
Back in the day when Lauwersmeer and the Waddensea were still connected to each other sweet water used to get mixed up in the salt water. In 1969, out of fear of floods, a decision was made to build a dam separating sweet and salt water. It also exposed part of the sea bottom.
A stunning new nature reserve arose, with a huge appeal to all kinds of birds. The natural development of this place is so unique that is has been given the status of ‘National Park’.
The Lauwersmeer is an important place for the bird migration. In the fall and spring the bird migration takes place and millions of birds fly all over the world. For some birds it is just a resting place to gain strength through feeding, for others it is a place to sit out the entire summer. In the winter you’ll find numerous geese that are sitting out the winter in the Lauwersmeer.
So no matter the time of year you visit this stunning area, there are always numerous special bird species around you can spot.
