AROUND THE TIDLE WATER IN RØMØ-TØNDER

It is a good idea to always keep track of when the tide is highest and lowest when planning a visit to the Wadden Sea.

The tide in the Romo-Tønder area varies between +1 meters and -1 meters, ie. that when the water is at its peak, a grown man would not be able to reach the bottom if the person stood somewhere where there was no water during the low tide period.

When there is a flood, the water level can rise even higher. In 1999, on December 3, there was a 100 year record of 5 meters inside Ribe and this was even in the low tide.
