National Park Day 2024: FREE evening walk

Am Nationalpark-Tag 2024 bietet NaturKulturVarde in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Nationalpark Wattenmeer und der Gemeinde Varde eine spannende, inspirierende und schmackhafte Wanderung mit überzeugenden Präsentationen der fantastischen Natur und des kulturellen Erbes von Varde an.

Did you know that the Wadden Sea National Park runs right up to the town of Varde and that the area close to the town offers fantastic nature and cultural experiences? Join our evening walk from the source of the National Park in Varde town on Wednesday the 22nd of May and see for yourself!

The walk takes place in groups of up to 40 people per team, which are set off respectively. You can therefore sign up for the team that suits you best. The route follows the urban loop along the coast-to-coast path in Varde Ådal, where you will meet both nature and cultural communicators at various information points along the way.


  • Welcome at Slotsbanken and the first presentation about the castle, which has a great place in the history of the market town. Afterwards, you will be accompanied by your group towards the first station.
  • First stop: Meet an angler - stories about the river, fishing, salmon and houting.
  • Second stop: Nature in the river valley with focus on the importance of the Wadden Sea and special species, including snipe, meadowsweet and more.
  • Third stop: Hear about nature conservation in the river valleys and taste the result - beef goulash soup from Ådalen.
  • Fourth stop: Hear about why the Varde River is so unique in the Wadden Sea National Park.
