  • Apen Hengstforder Muehle am Deich

In Apen is the only freshwater mudflat in the Northwest of Germany. It was created in 2005 by a dike relocation in order to obtain a retention area for possible floodings. The tides cause the flooding of some terrain and thus created a very own flora and fauna. It is now a nature reserve area and observations can be made from the tower of a pumping station or two observation platforms on the south side and the Hengstforder mill.
