The entire coastal region is part of the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park.

 Northern Friesland includes the coastal section between Dithmarschen and Denmark. In the south is the Eiderstedt peninsula, where the River Eider meets the sea.The North Frisian Islands are also part of it  and located inside the national park as well.
