Next to the Dutch border in the north of Knokke lies a unique nature reserve. It's the most important mud flat and salting area in Belgium.
It's a paradise for bird lovers. You will find many birds here looking for a breeding place or a place to stay during winter.
As a result of the salt sea water, this nature reserve has some specific flora that you won't find elsewhere, like the rare sea lavender.
There is also a bird sanctuary in the Zwin with a wide range of native birds.
Don't forget to bring along boots and a telescope.
The Zwin is open from 9 am to 7 pm from Easter to September and closes at 5 pm during wintertime. Closed on Wednesdays from November to the end of March.
Entrance fee for adults: 5 EUR
