More about the History of Butjadingen
The peninsula was formed during the Middle Ages when huge floods created today's North Sea coast lines. After the disastrous Second Marcellus Flood on January 13, 1362 (which occurred around the day of Marcelli Pontificis) Butjadingen temporarily became an island. Its name is derived from Low German "buten" (=outside) and "Jade" and thus means the lands on the other side of the Jade river.
In front of the peninsula is the Wadden Sea which stretches between the Jade's and the Weser's mouths about 23 kilometres to the northwest beyond the Mellum island. It is part of the Nationalpark Niedersächsisches Wattenmeer (Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park), one of three German Wadden Sea National Parks.
