    The Rantum Basin is a 600-acre water basin in Rantum, which was rebuilt by a dike in the late 1930s to provide a constant water level for the originally planned seaplane airport. In fact, the Rantumbecken has never been used as a water airport.
    From now on, a seabird sanctuary has been set up on the new nature reserve, which today attracts ornithologists from all over Germany. The Rantum Basin is now one of the most species-rich bird sanctuaries in Northern Germany, with more than 50 species of birds nesting and resting.

    Interior views of the Rantum Basin; The Rantum basin has been protected as a European reserve for over 50 years and acts as a breeding ground and resting place for many birds and migratory birds. It is surrounded by a 9 km long dike, which can be easily circumnavigated both on foot and by bike.
