Access

There are two ways. A good one (walking, biking) from Neuharlingersiel in Northwest or one from Harlesiel in the northeast. Both take about 2 km until you reach a little platform with a scope. The biggest advantage there ist that you can look over the Wadden Sea for more birds roosting in the saltmarshes. The second way is for the car directly to the lake from the south (you see it at a map). Bring your own scopes!
