At least the causeway to the island of Mandř on the west coast of Denmark.

Interesting. It's not paved though, if you get stuck you've got a major problem.

BTW, is true that all Frisian Islands (in NL, D and DK) can be reached by foot during low tide (although is dangerous and you must know tides' timetable)?

Me neither and I'm not sure Slovenia even exercises its sovereignty over it. There's a border crossing only when you reach a road to the rest of Slovenia, there are no signs for Slovenia at the actual border (just a sign for the Croatian municipality of Lanišće) and there's a Croatian sign for the Croatian road 5011 in Slovenia.

It is made of coarse gravel. You will not get stuck.

Only on very low tides. I'm not sure you can ever walk to Texel though.

You can never walk to Texel, unless you're about 10 meters tall or so.

Unless you are with a very very heavy machine, like 18-wheeler or something. Sometimes such gravel is used specially for this purpose.

There's one in the NE of England to get to Holy island.

The first ab-und anreise day in Mayrhofen today. It's hustling and bustling with tourists from all over the world. Snow is great to ski on, plenty of beer as always and I'm not going anywhere until April. Doing my winter season of taxi work, lots of airport runs to Innsbruck, Munich and Salzburg, two days per week skiing and some serious drinking in between. Lots of plates from all over Europe as far as Russia (lots of Russians here among the Dutch, Germans, Brits and everybody else) so who needs to travel the world when the world is already here.

Let the beer and schnapps flow!
