Dressed with shorts, warm outerwear and good mudflat walking shoes, you will brave the mudflats. With a mudflat walk you will experience all facets that the mudflat has to offer.
From beautiful views, silences, an overwhelming nature to seals in the wild.
During the mudflat walking the guide will explain everything about the origin of mudflat walking and nature. On the mud flats every sea breeze is your breeze. Cold, rain, storm? Sometimes it takes a while, but how beautiful mudflats are!
With mudflats you walk over the bottom of the Wadden Sea, this is of course only possible when it is low tide. Nature has it all in control on the Wadden Sea. This makes it very special and exciting. Walking on the mudflats is therefore not entirely risk-free, so you can never go on the mudflats without guidance. (top of page)
Sights in the area
Sense of Place
Sense of Place is a collection of cultural landscape projects, started by the founder of the Oerol festival Joop Mulder. The idea behind this is to highlight and enlarge the forgotten cultural history and beauty of the Wadden area through various projects.
Various artists have been given the opportunity to design temporary and permanent art that will be exhibited at various locations along the Wadden Sea coast.
Two already iconic works of art will be added to the landscape at Holwerd:
Dike of a Wijf
A vast landscape from which a voluptuous dike rises. An enormous female nude, covered with grass, about one hundred metres long and up to twenty metres high. Mother the woman, the Dutch deerne, thick buttocks, full breasts, milk and real butter, sheep and buttercups; tender and juicy in one breath! She lies beautifully on the dike with her ‘fertile’ shapes.
With behind it the nursery of the seed potato and the building ground of many other vegetables. As part of the seawall, it offers security and safety. In short, a ‘Dijk Van Een wijf’!
This landart project by Nienke Brokke on the dike near Holwerd will soon be a soft welcome for all travellers to Ameland.
Waiting for high water
“Waiting for high water” is a statue of Jan Ketelaar. The statue consists of two women, five metres high, welded from metal. A full woman and a thin woman. They look out over the sea.
The sculpture is about the search for balance and exchange. (top of page)
