Get to the top of the Panorama Tower in this nature reserve to see everything the light touches is part of nature. Enjoy the fresh air, stick your feet into the sand dunes and see tons of birds flying by!

Learn and explore the wild side at this big nature reserve. Not only can you explore the great outdoors here but you also get all the deets from their exhibitions.

The Great Outdoors

Zwin Nature Park has tons of beautiful spots. It’s right on the Belgian-Netherlands border, so it’s connected to the sea. That means you get dunes, lush flowers, and wacky plants somehow growing in the seawater mudflats.

There’s beautiful lush flowers and other plants in the mudflats using the seawater to survive in this unique environment. The two unique 2 km trails around the reserve show you a little bit of everything nature has to offer.

  • Walk along either of the two 2km trails. Take a rest along the way at the bird observation huts
  • Each of the huts has interactive info and guides available (Dutch & English) plus activities for kids.
  • You get the best views from the top of the Panorama tower but the binoculars in the observation huts are pretty good to use too

Get Bird Crazy

Learn how birds fly, why they fly to Zwin, and how to spread your wings like a bird at their interactive screens. There’s also a hazard cockpit where you can act as a flight captain trying to avoid birds in the sky. Yes, it’s mostly popular with kids but let’s be honest we all want to try being a pilot at least once, right?

Tips and Tricks

  • Book your tickets online in advance on their website
  • No bikes allowed here! Only outside the park.
  • If you see a red flag up on the Zwin plane it’s a sign of danger like stormy weather. You’re not allowed to enter the dunes during that time
