Dark Sky Park Lauwersmeer
The world’s darkest places
With the title Dark Sky Park, Lauwersmeer National Park is one of the world’s darkest places. Here, you can experience nature in the dark. There are 41 of these parks around the world, protecting the darkness to ensure minimum impact on nature. Many animals depend on the darkness that is supposed to reign during the night. Truly dark places are becoming increasingly rare however, due to increasing lighting at night in the West.
Star lit sky
One perfect reason to visit Dark Sky Park Lauwersmeer is the beautifully clear star lit sky. Since there is no light coming from below and the Wadden region is the place with the least amount of light pollution in Holland, you can even see the Northern Lights sometimes.
