The Leybucht is the second largest bay in East Frisia after the Dollart. The Jade Bight is larger than both, but belongs historically to Oldenburg. The bay lies in western East Frisia between the port of Greetsiel and Norddeich, about 18 kilometres north of Emden and 25 kilometres west of the county town of Aurich. It has an area of about 19 km². It attained its maximum extent of 129 km² following the storm surges of 1374 and 1376 and stretched from Greetsiel in the west to Marienhafe in the east and from the edge of the town of Norden as far as Canhusen (in the municipality of Hinte) in the south. In the centuries that followed the bay was increasingly empoldered so that by 1950 it had been reduced to its present size. The Leybucht lies in the Lower Saxon Wadden Sea National Park (Nationalpark Niedersächsisches Wattenmeer) and belongs to Zone I. It enjoys special protection, not least because of the fauna and flora of its salt marshes. more…
