Nordstrandischmoor (Danish: Nordstrand Mor, Frisian: Lätj Möör; also known locally as Lüttmoor) is a Hallig (undyked islet) off the North Frisian coast in Germany and lies within the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park.
Administratively, Nordstrandischmoor belongs to the municipality of Nordstrand and is one of its parishes. The Hallig has an area of 1.9 km2. In the spring of 2008, 27 people lived on Nordstrandischmoor.
Its link with the mainland is a construction railway, with a rail gauge of 600 mm, which runs to the mainland at Beltringharder Koog. At high tide ships can also dock. At low tide the Hallig may also be reached on foot over the mudflats.
On the island, there are four warfs, artificial dwelling mounds on which are located a primary school (with 3 students, the smallest school in Germany - as at 2010) and a restaurant. The four warfs, from east to west are:
