For this year’s institute excursion, we went to the Wadden Sea. It is a world heritage site and the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world.
The mud flat hiking tour began in Sahlenburg (Cuxhaven) and lead to the island Neuwerk. On the island, we had a great lunch and afterwards leisure time. Some people used the time for sunbathing and others for the exploration of the island. There were even some who went for a dive in the now water-filled Wadden Sea.
Fun fact: Neuwerk is an exclave of Hamburg and is listed as a district of Hamburg-Mitte. Therefore, we went from Hamburg-Harburg to Hamburg-Mitte and back to Hamburg-Harburg.
