The National Park on 180 m²
Until further notice, the Neuwerk National Park House is closed due to the pandemic. As soon as the authorities relax the Corona rules, we will adjust our event and opening concept accordingly and inform you immediately. We sincerely greet you all and look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to the National Park soon! Your Jordsand and National Park Team
The National Park House on Neuwerk is the information centre of the Hamburg Wadden Sea National Park and Biosphere Reserve. It is located in the centre of the island just 200 m from Neuwerk Tower. The opening hours—like all life on the island—depend on the tides. Admission is free.
On around 180 m² of exhibition space, you will gain insights into the island’s history, the formation of the Wadden Sea and learn about the typical flora and fauna of Neuwerk and its two small ‘sister’ islands Scharhörn and Nigehörn. The focus is on the enormously rich bird life. Special attraction: the large tidal basin, where you can experience the tide—the engine of the Wadden Sea habitat—up close for 90 minutes.
Groups of all kinds can book an event room right next to the exhibition with a large panorama window and a view of the meadows: Educational and informational materials of all kinds are available, as are the 3 Neuwerk crime scene thrillers. More here. The gallery on the upper floor offers art and specialist exhibitions. In summer 2020, the history of the bird watchers on Scharhörn was shown with contemporary photos and watercolours.
If you have any questions or would like a guided tour of the exhibitions, you are always welcome to contact the staff of the Jordsand Association. Most of the guided tours and events offered by the National Park and the Jordsand Association also start from here.
Virtual walk through the Neuwerk National Park House
