July 3, 2019
Green meadows, shady forests and the North Sea right in front of your nose: The former wadden and salt marshes Katinger Watt at the river mouth of the Eider was diked about 50 years ago for flood protection reasons. In time, a unique sanctuary for plants and animals has developed here, which you can walk through on this 18-kilometer hike.Start of the tour is in the tranquil village Vollerwiek. From there it goes straight to the water and up to the Eider barrier on the dike along. Let the salty air of the North Sea blow your nose and enjoy the wide view over Eiderstedt. After a good six kilometers you have reached the impressive barrage.Now the route turns left and leads you into the Katinger Watt. Observe meadow birds such as the avocet and the lapwing in their habitat. Keep your eyes peeled for the gray geese and white-tailed eagles. Breathe the scent of the orchids and watch the cattle graze on the salt marsh.At the end of your tour of this gem, the nature center Katinger Watt of the NABU is on your way. Here you can get exciting information about the Watt and the uniqueness of this nature. From here it is not far to your starting point, where you can end the day with a fruity piece of fruit cake in the Glücks-Café.Arrival and departure: Garding is reached by train every hour from Husum. If the whole route is too long for you, you can also take the callBus to Vollerwiek from the station in Garding - this will shorten the route to around 17 kilometers. In the end, the RufBus also brings you back. Important: Small group card to solve immediately after Vollerwiek and then the Rufbus costs nothing extra. Simply call at least two hours before the ride and arrange the time. More infos under 04862/1000788 or under rufbus-eiderstedt.de.
