The History & Sights in the Area

Tonder has a long history with Germany, it grew in the 12th Century as it was a large market town, however after large floodings in the area then dikes were built and this blocked the goods arriving by boat to the town.  In the 17th century the town again experienced growth in the lustrious lace market and this can be seen in the wonderful coloured buildings around the town.  Throughout the two worldwars the town swapped between being a Danish run state and a German run state, however was officially handed back to Denmark in 1945 at the end of the second world war.

As I've mentioned Tonder is beautiful!

Of course Wadden UNESCO National sea Park is a must see and here you can see the black sun, flocks of migrating starlings that literally block out the sun light it is an amazing sight.
